A man-eater tiger at Lucknow Zoo has cancer, being treated

     Lucknow: Lucknow zoo authorities, aided by veterinarians, are treating a man-eater tiger diagnosed with cancer. Two-and- half-year old male tiger 'Kishen' had killed five people before being trapped by wildlife wardens in the Kishenpur sanctuary. Lucknow Zoo Director Renu Singh said: " We saw wounds around the ear of the tiger, and after repeated dressings, the wound reappeared. We did biopsy and found it is suffering from 'haemangio sarcoma'- a cancer of the blood vessels.” The tiger was brought to the zoo in March this year and has been under constant medical observation and care since then.
