Los Angeles Zoo has sacrificed lion couple together for years

The Los Angeles Zoo, in the United States, said goodbye to its best-known couple. The lions Hubert and Kalisa were sacrificed last Thursday (30) for health problems caused by age.

“It is a very hard loss for the zoo community. In the early mornings, employees would hear Hubert’s roars everyday. I personally will miss hearing him. And I can’t think of Hubert without his companion Kalisa,” declared Alisa Behar, responsible for the mammal section at the zoo, by way of a note.

Born in captivity, they were both 21 years old and had been together at the California Zoo for six years. Before that, they already lived in the Seattle Zoo, in the north of the country. Despite the lasting relationship, they never came to procreate.

“Hubert and Kalisa are an iconic part of the LA Zoo experience. Our employees and visitors were very moved by their loyal relationship,” said Denise Verret, the zoo’s CEO, also in a note.

The CEO also thanked the institution’s medical team for extending the animals’ lives. According to the zoo, the life expectancy of lions in captivity is 17 years.

“Its longevity is true proof of the excellent level of care of our veterinarians,” said Verret.
