The tiger, called Pedang, is not responding to other forms of treatment and staff at the park believes acupuncture would strengthen its immune system.

Acupuncture will help Pedang "to deal with his own medical issues by himself, to strengthen his immune system," Mor Mosinzon, a holistic therapy specialist at the park told the Telegraph.

The whole procedure was performed under a general anesthetic. Staff at the park will wait to see if the treatment works prior to going in for a second session.
