A lion at Greenville Zoo succumbs to health problems

Euthanized: Greenville Zoo Bids Farewell to African Lion, Saied

In a heartbreaking announcement, the Greenville Zoo revealed that one of their beloved African Lions, Saied, had been humanely euthanized at the age of 15 after struggling with multiple health issues. Despite receiving treatment for degenerative joint disease and a spinal neurological issue, recent testing showed that his conditions had worsened significantly, impacting his quality of life.

After discussing Saied’s health status with zoo staff, the difficult decision was made to euthanize him. Saied and his brother Chuma had joined the Greenville Zoo from the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia back in 2010. Saied was known as the dominant male of the pair, and now zoo staff will monitor Chuma as he adjusts to life without his brother.

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. The zoo is currently planning a remembrance event for Saied, and they will provide updates as they develop.
