Russian authorities said Tuesday they would rather perform neurosurgery on a crippled Amur tiger with paralyzed hind legs and tail than put the animal to sleep.

Great that this tiger is not in “civilized” country like Denmark, than in eastern “uncivilized” Russia!
Thank you Cher

Best wishes for the Tiger, hopefully the surgery can be successful and carried out so that this big cat is not facing a life of pain. Wild boars can inflict untold damage to any predator. May the tiger roam once again...and avoid wild boars.

I hope they are not just experimenting on the poor animal!

Personally I think that the 'uncivilized' are everywhere, here in Italy too. I think simply that there are bastards everywhere but also good and compassionate people, as in this case. Thanks Cher.
