Liz Bonnin takes us inside the dramatic world of big animal surgery. This time, she travels to Tbilisi in Georgia to witness a life-saving operation on a magnificent Asian elephant named Grande. Having survived a catastrophic flood at the zoo where he lives, Grande has a badly infected tusk. One of the world’s top wildlife vets attempts to remove it in a race against the clock, as every minute Grande is under anaesthetic, the weight of his own body risks damaging his vital organs.
