The abandoned white tabby that was found paralyzed and half-dead on Clean Monday in a bin outside the Attica Park was submitted to diagnostic tests.
The people of the Park treated him and the tiger yesterday underwent extensive diagnostic tests – magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography, in a specialized center – which confirmed the criticality of his health condition.

In a statement issued by the Attica Zoological Park, through a post on Facebook, it points out that the health condition of the little tiger remains serious, she is in pain and cannot feed herself.

“The test results confirmed the initial assessments of the seriousness of his health condition, as both genetic malformations and those acquired from the wrong way of managing him were found.

The young animal faces significant problems in the spine, pelvis, ribs, as well as in many bones that greatly limit and make its mobility painful.

At the same time, due to the deformed skeleton, some organs are compressed, thus making it difficult even to take food or breathe.

The young animal, as it cannot feed itself, is fed with the help of our caretakers and has gained (just) 1 kg”.

The beautiful tiger unfortunately does not have much hope to live, as the director of the park, Jean-Jacques Le Sueur, had stated before the exams.

In the announcement of the Attica Zoological Park it is stated that “the detailed medical results have been sent to the competent national authorities, to the special scientific committee of EZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquariums) as well as to specialized veterinarians abroad, who have been recommended to us by organizations such as Born Free and Wild Cat Sanctuary in the US.

At the same time, in cooperation with and following our request to the Ministry of the Environment, a committee is established with the participation of specialized veterinarians, both from our Park and from other agencies, as well as university professors with the aim of safer decision-making for the subsequent management and support of health of.

At the same time, we are in contact with a specialized rescue center in Europe, which hosts tigers and intends to take it over, if his health condition allows it.”
