A brave veterinarian is treating a sick tiger with acupuncture, sticking needles in its ear and other parts of the 14-year-old animal to cure a chronic ear infection.

The tiger was sedated before the vet, Mor Mosinzon, began treated “Pedang,” according to the Israel HaYom newspaper.

Pedang lives at the Zoological Center of Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan, which said this was the first time it used Chinese medicine on an animal. Antibiotics have not worked, and Mosinzon explained that the acupuncture is aimed at making the tiger stronger so its body can better absorb the antibiotics.
