Caprichio Tiger gets X-rays

Caprichio Tiger got X-rays last week, giving Carolina Tiger Rescue’s Dr. Angela Lassiter a closer look at his joints. The 7-year-old tiger has bowed legs and may suffer from metabolic bone disease, a bone deformity due to poor nutrition early in life. Caprichio was used in the cub-petting business when he was younger.
