Endangered rhino dies at San Antonio Zoo

 

SAN ANTONIO (UPI) -- Sabubu, an endangered black rhino who was at the San Antonio Zoo for 23 years, was euthanized after years of medical care, zoo officials said

Zoo staff said the 25-year-old rhino had an inflammatory bowel condition for the past 15 years and had been under veterinary care for some time, the San Antonio Express-News reported Tuesday

"She was doing well until a couple of weeks ago and she started having problems again," senior staff veterinarian Rob L. Coke said. "It was an unfortunate thing, but it was also fortunate that we were able to relieve her suffering. It was only a matter of time before this disease would catch up to us"

The average life span of a rhino is in the upper 20s, Coke said

Sabubu was born at the Cincinnati Zoo and came to the San Antonio Zoo at the age of 2

At San Antonio, she had three calves with her mate Herbie, who died unexpectedly of an intestinal infection in October

The loss of Sabubu was hard on the keepers who knew the day was coming, Coke said

"There were definitely tears," zoo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike said

An estimated 65 black rhinos are at zoos in North America and fewer than 4,000 survive in the wild, Coke said
