The Story Of an Amur Tiger Named Zhorik

Posted on April 6, 2011 by team

In 2009 this poor tiger was brought to a pet hospital in Chelyabinsk. Its inattentive owners fed the tiger with chicken bones that injured its palate. He nearly had no chances to survive…

The tiger was unconscious.

Veterinaries gave it injections with strong antibiotics.

In 2010 the best veterinaries from all the country gathered for the urgent operation.

Before the surgery Zhorik didn’t eat for a day.

They gave him hypnotic.

The operation lasted for 2 hours.

Temperature control.

    There is nothing wrong with feeding chicken, in fact I recommend you do feed chicken bones as well, as long as it is uncooked. Cooked bone is in fact bone china and can’t be digested, nether does it breakdown in the animals gut. Avian bones are cellular and therefore do not splinter as do other bones,,, Until you cook them. Never ever feed cooked bone. If by chance it was an uncooked bone then there is more to the story than just chicken bone.

    This is a wonderful story, I’m happy the vets were able to help and save this tiger.

    I don’t believe people should keep wild animals as pets either but I do have a kitty that is half Bengal Leopard I found abandoned in a filthy alley as a tiny kitten. To me she’s Sterling.

    I wonder, will the tiger be kept in a zoo or refuge or released back into the wild?
