Sumatran Tiger Need Your Help!

A Sumatran tiger (Phantera tigris sumatrae) may have one of his legs amputated due to infection after being entangled by a hunters sling snare trap in Bengkulu. Veterinarian of Bengkulus Natural Resource Conservation Agency (BKSDA) Erni Suyanti Musabine said here on Friday the tigers front right leg had to be amputated to prevent the spread of bacterial infection. Despite the defective front right leg, the tiger was in good physical condition. It had neat fur and his weight was proper.

The three-year old female tiger was 1.5 meters long and weighed 70 kilograms. Antibiotic was used to prevent the spread of the bacterial infection to the other parts of the tigers body. The tiger was now kept in the BKSDA office and will receive follow-up treatment.
Animals Indonesia committed to assist BKSDA to look after this poor tiger till we find a sanctuary. Please donate.

Seekor Harimau Sumatra diamputasi salah satu kakinya karena infeksi akibat jeratan pemburu. Doketr hewan BKSDA Bengkulu Erni Suyanti Musabine mengatakan bahwa kaki depan kanan harus diamputasi untuk mencegah penyebaran infeksi. Meskipun kaki kanan depannya sudah tidak berfungsi lagi, secara umum kondisi harimau betina ini sangat baik. Saat ini, harimau ini ditempatkan di kantor BKSDA dan mendapatkan peawatn lanjutan. Animals Indonesia berkomitmen untuk membantu BKSDA merawat hingga kai mendapatkan sanctuary. Mohon untuk menyumbang.
