Wildlife park staff ‘relieved’ as Vlad the tiger survives anaesthetic

Staff at a wildlife park have said they “breathed a huge sigh of relief” when their 12-year-old tiger Vladimir woke up unscathed from a risky medical procedure. Kim Wilkins, carnivore team leader at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, said the Amur tiger, known as Vlad, came round from the general anaesthetic, following an X-ray on his spine, looking “annoyed, but alert”.
