A lion at Greenville Zoo succumbs to health problems

Lion Euthanized: Greenville Zoo Bids Farewell to Beloved African Lion Saied

In the morning, the Greenville Zoo made a heartbreaking announcement about one of their beloved African Lions. Saied, who had been with the zoo since 2010, was humanely euthanized at the age of 15 after battling multiple health issues. The lion had been receiving treatment for degenerative joint disease and a spinal neurological issue, but recent testing revealed that his conditions had worsened significantly, affecting his quality of life. After a discussion among zoo staff about his health status, the difficult decision was made to euthanize him.

Saied and his brother Chuma had joined the Greenville Zoo from the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia. Saied was known as the dominant male of the pair, and now Chuma will be closely monitored by zoo staff as he adjusts to life without his brother. Plans are being made for a remembrance event for Saied, and visitors will be informed when details become available.

The Greenville Zoo expressed their deep sadness over the loss of Saied, who was a cherished member of their zoo community. They thanked visitors and animal lovers for their support and understanding during this difficult time. Stay tuned for more information on how you can honor Saied’s memory at the Greenville Zoo.
