An elderly African lion whose roar could be heard in the surrounding neighborhood has been euthanized at Atlanta's zoo. Veterinarians decided to euthanize 22-year-old Farasi after it became clear age-related complications were harming his quality of life.
Atlanta's zoo is celebrating the world's oldest known living male gorilla. Zoo Atlanta is planning a birthday celebration for Ozzie Friday. The great ape turned 52 on Wednesday. Ozzie was born in the wild in Africa in approximately 1961.
