Sahebrao has been making news in the media since past few days as the male tiger lost its limb. However, the animal was brought forward on the operation table of city veterinarians and orthopaedicians. They tried their best to fix the artificial limb of the animal but to their disappoinment, the tiger’s body rejected the artificial limb. just after they removed the prosthetic.
Ever since losing the paw and remaining in the trap since 2012, the male tiger was brought to Gorewada Rescue Centre in Nagpur where the operation was carried out for the nine-year-old to get the chance to walk over comfortably.

Hence it was seen removing the same.
