Zoo euthanizes white lioness due to cancerous growths
The Toronto Zoo has euthanized its white lioness, Nokanda, after she apparently developed cancerous tumours. The “very beautiful big cat” was 15.
“It’s hard, but it’s the cycle of life,” said senior vet Graham Crawshaw. “We have animals being born and animals dying as they get older, just like as with your own pets it can be hard,” he said. “There was nothing we would have been able to treat her with.”
