Big Cat Health Updates
Priya Tiger is eating and taking her meds. She's being good about exiting the transport wagon so we can clean it and then hopping back in when we are done.
Chief Spotted Eye is resting. He's not eating yet and he's still breathing hard when he exerts himself, but aside from that he's doing his job of healing from within.
Jamie's note: Chief is till hanging in there. He ate 4 small pieces of meat this morning and his breathing seems to be improving. He is also more alert and not shy about voicing his opinion. If he continues to improve and his breathing becomes more stable he will have surgery in a few days. This will run about $2,000

Global Big Cat News
The lion was tethered to a wooden shack with a 3-foot metal chain. Not only did the chain prevent the lion from moving around, it also rubbed against the lion's neck, causing his mane to disappear. He was so emaciated, you could count the bones in his ribcage. https://www.thedodo.com/rescued-lion-ethiopia-dolo-2103624558.html
