Pain, hunger, and disease are some of the threats faced by thousands of specimens of nature, desperate for the means to survive because one day what belonged to them was stolen.
There have always been many conflicts between the tiger and the human, with humans normally invading the natural habitat of the former.
In this case, an endangered Siberian tiger stepped out of his comfort zone in search of human help. These predators, being one of the largest in the world, normally avoid all human contact.
Alexey Khadeyev, a citizen of Russian nationality, went out to the courtyard of her house early like every morning.
When trying to open his door, he noticed that something was obstructing it and when he gave it a strong push, the only thing he heard was the growl of an animal. Alarmed, she decided to call the city Security Service.
The excruciating pain suffered by the tiger forced him to go out in search of help
Specialists sedated him and the tiger was transferred to the Alekseevka Rehabilitation Center in Primorsky, Russia. The feline at no time behaved aggressively, he always remained calm.
He only sought human help as a last resort in his desperation:
The experts determined that it was a 10-year-old female, who did not have upper teeth because she had jaw problems, which would explain her state of exhaustion.
Due to the condition of his jaw, he was unable to consume food. It is believed that she had not fed for several days, prompting her to seek human help.
The poor tigress was not even able to eat by herself
The tigress was in serious condition and needed urgent help. Specialists consider the unfortunate hypothesis that the feline could have been attacked by hunters, who are a great threat to this species.
In this regard, conservationist Yury Kolpak, from the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources, commented:
“The feline does not have gunshot wounds, however she has serious problems in her oral cavity.
The tigress is in a state of complete exhaustion, has various gum problems and no upper teeth.»
Had he not found the help he so badly needed, he would have starved to death.
It is possible that your tiredness is due to the fact that you cannot eat properly, this being one of the reasons why you cannot have a surgical intervention.
As it does not have enough strength, it cannot be given any type of general anesthesia.
For now, he is in recovery with qualified assistance. The vets are doing everything they can to help her with her recovery.
The tigress is enjoying a feast of ground meat, regaining her strength to soon opt for major surgery to help her solve her problem.
The tiger uses its size and strength to hit its potential prey and bring it down. They reach 90 km/hour in a short sprint, then use their muscles to hold and knock down prey, especially large ones like a gaur.
Once it has its victim on the ground, it bites at the back of the neck, usually severing the spinal cord, or piercing the trachea, giving its prey almost immediate death.
Hence the seriousness that a tigress like this poor hungry feline, her teeth fail.
It is amazing to see how necessity can cause an animal to leave its habitat in search of a helping hand.
May this story serve to encourage others not to be indifferent to animals in need, many times we are their only hope!
