Female tiger seriously injured

A white tiger by the name of Sasha has been seriously injured by her mate Brahma at Eskilstuna Zoo.

Apparently the injuries came about during play that transgressed into more aggressive hunting behavior, giving true rise to the expression “easy, tiger”.

Sasha's injuries were life-threatening but as of Wednesday her situation had stabilized.

The zoo's head Helena Olsson told news agency TT that they were helping as much as possible with pain relief and antibiotics to avoid further infection.

According to Olsson, injuries sustained through another tiger's attack are equivalent to being run over by a train.

The white tigers have been one of the park's main attractions and many hoped they would breed.
