Modern family: Dog adopts abandoned tiger cubs

A dog called Tally has adopted three tiger cubs after their mother abandoned them after giving birth at Sochi zoo in Russia.

Vets advertised on the internet that a feeding dog was being sought. Tally now treats the cubs as if they were her own puppies.

Nicholas Owen tries to explain the unusual set-up.
