Little Jaguar Was Hiding Saddest Secret Inside Her Body

A little jaguar was found by a Good Samaritan. The jaguar’s mother was not around, and the little cat couldn’t move – she was tetraplegic. Lucky for her, she was rescued and taken to an animal hospital to see what was wrong.

Veronica Cabrera, a veterinary student at San Francisco de Quito University in Ecuador, said that they get wild animals every week from all over the country.

The animals are usually victims of indiscriminate hunting. The jaguar got help from the doctors at the hospital’s wildlife animal rescue organization, TUERI.

The villagers were not willing to give too much information to the hospital staff, all they know is that the jaguar was found next to a palm plantation.

Cabrera said it is likely that the two cats got too close to the plantation and got shot.

After getting an X-ray, the doctors found 18 bullets in the cat’s body.

No one gave up on her, they named her D’yaira. Dr. Andres Ortega and Dr. Gabriela Parra took D’yaira to surgery.

They found that many of the bullets were lodged in her bones and couldn’t be removed. Another surgery will be attempted, and they think that D’yaira will need five months of therapy before she can be moved to a wildlife rehab center.

D’yaira is showing signs of improvement. Some veterinary students saw her move her back legs. She is getting stronger.
