Steve Hartman filed an Assignment America feature on a Labrador mutt bitch at an Iowa animal shelter who has become wet nurse to a litter of motherless kittens. Hartman offered other examples of cross-species nursing--a fawn and a cat, a foal and a goat, a baby baboon and a leopard--before wondering "why would an animal show such grace?" His answer: "For most mothers it is just what they do…feel free to appreciate it this weekend."
