Lame giraffe given physiotherapy at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

A giraffe has received treatments more commonly given to racehorses to help with age-related aches and pains.

Staff at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, near Doncaster, noticed 11-year-old Behansin was slightly lame and had a sore shoulder.

He has been responding well to laser therapy and treatments from a pulse massage machine from equine chiropractors.
