Boost for suffering war tiger.

THE suffering of Prince, the tiger maddened by Nato bombing in Belgrade, has eased a little after protests from animal lovers.

Now, although his future is still in doubt, the city's zoo has moved the once majestic beast to a larger cage.

Prince was so stressed in the war he bit off all the toes on his hind paws. The Scottish Mirror's exposure of his appalling plight in a tiny cage led to a flood of complaints.

The London-based World Society for the Protection of Animals has already raised nearly pounds 7,000 to buy him and find a new home. They reckon the rescue will cost around pounds 25,000.
