Animals Big cats. When Lucifer the 10 year old male puma at Chessington Zoo developed a slight limp, the Animal Superintendent, suspected ingrowing claws. Here is the latest method used to arrest and perform an operation on a wild animal without it being completely made unconscious. An anaesthetised dart is fired from an air pistol or in the case of long distances, a rifle, and the anaesthetic tranquilises and sedates the wild animal without necessarily rendering it completely unconscious, and without unnecessary suffering. Lucifer quite fit again in his paddock and with his wifes. December 1969 Z11836A-010
