WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg zoo says it had to euthanize a camel due to age-related conditions.
The Assiniboine Park Zoo said in a Facebook post that Perry had been at the zoo since 1994.
It says the 23-year-old female Bactrian camel was born at the Toronto Zoo.
The zoo said Perry had been “under veterinary care for some time now due to age-related conditions” when the decision to euthanize was made.
The post also said Perry “will be missed by all staff, volunteers and visitors, but in particular by the staff and zookeepers who cared for her over long life at the zoo.”
