How do you get a big sick tiger to the vet?

That's the problem staff at Shepreth Wildlife Park near Cambridge had to solve when Bengal tiger Amber became so ill she had to go into the animal hospital.

Vets discovered a lump the size of a rugby ball inside her tummy - and she had to have a life-saving operation.

The trip took weeks of preparation and thankfully Amber's now made a full recovery, as Sonali's been finding out.
