Sick Tiger Cub Gets Rescued From Circus, Makes Incredible Recovery And Finds Love!
August 3, 2016
This 9-month-old tiger was so ill, she weighed only 30 pounds when she was supposed to weigh around 120 pounds.
When Aasha was rescued from the circus, her bald spots covered almost her entire body and her skin was dry with cracked, dark areas and bleeding.
"Every day, twice a day, I would go in and give Aasha medications and spend time with her," said Vicky Keahey, founder of Texas' In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Educational Center.
At first, Keahey would have to chase Aasha to get her into medicated baths, but the cub soon started to like them and her condition improved drastically.
"Within eight months she looked like a real tiger, and it was time to see how she would react to other tigers," Keahey said.
Aasha was introduced to a bigger tiger named Smuggler who "went crazy for her and was always showing off for her."
Now the two live in the same enclosure together and Aasha is a healthy and very much loved tigress.
And she just can't get enough of her baths!
