Caption only: Great Dane substitutes as lion cub's mother

Unlikely playmates Patches, a Great Dane, plays with one of three lion cubs, Peanut, on a farm in Paarl near Cape Town, South Africa, on Wednesday. Their owner, Ferrucio Ferruci, reared them and says Patches is content to be tugged and pawed by the eager cubs as a substitute mother.
