    I would be surprised if this poor beast actually has Downs syndrome, which is due to an extra chromosome, but this could checked quite simply.

    That is just awful, the poor thing, how does it feed with those teeth it looks as if it was crushed at birth with the crumpled face. My heart bleeds for it.

    Didn't Kenny die a little while ago? I also agree with gentle lemur; I'm not sure if he really has Down's syndrome.

    But yeah, his case was really sad. Sucks that inbreeding is so bad in white tigers.
