A 24-year-old giraffe died on the Lincoln Park Zoo on Thursday.
The giraffe, named Etana, had been below intensive care by veterinary workers since 2017 for age-related cumulative issues, in line with a zoo assertion on Friday.
The zoo experiences that Etana skilled a dramatic change in her well being and died rapidly in a single day.
He arrived at Lincoln Park Zoo from one other facility in 2003. She went on to exceed the common lifespan of feminine giraffes, which is about 20, the zoo stated.
“Etana was a really particular animal to us right here on the zoo, in addition to to lots of the zoo’s guests and volunteers,” stated Mike Murray, the zoo’s curator of mammals and behavioral husbandry, who known as him “the chief of the giraffe herd.”
