The tigress, named Tigrulia, injured her hind limbs and spine after falling in shock amid several loud explosions.
"Tigrulia was seriously injured after the morning’s explosions near us. She hit the grate in shock, fell down, and still can't get up," the center said.
"We are waiting for the doctors' decision on how to proceed."
The rest of the animals at the center were physically uninjured but experienced severe stress as a result of the attack.
