Mohan’s a male Bengal tiger who came to The Wildcat Sanctuary in 2017. He was 15 years old at the time and had many physical issues he’d been dealing with.
When authorities contacted us about helping two tigers at an out-of-state facility, they told us we’d probably have to euthanize one and the other was also in very bad shape. Thankfully, we were able to give them both a good life after intervening with the veterinary care they so desperately needed.
At the time, Mohan could barely put weight on his front paws. His claws were overgrown and embedded into his soft paw pads.
Plus, he suffered from degenerative joint disease of the knees, due to untreated cruciate ligament injuries. His rear legs were permanently bowed and he had rear muscle atrophy.
Surgery wouldn’t be an option, but we could make him comfortable and more mobile with joint support and pain management.
Life at the Sanctuary
Today, Mohan is one the sweetest tigers and beloved by everyone. He’s definitely a gentle giant. He loves soaking up the sunshine and can even get up on a low platform built especially for him. His favorite thing to do is lounge in the shade, just enjoying the summer breezes.
Mohan has such a positive attitude and never gives up. There’s never a day he doesn’t look forward to! He’s an inspiration to us all.We’re so thankful we were able to intervene to help him live out his days in comfort.
