She had been unwell for some time and is thought to have suffered heart failure which led to her being unable to get to her feet on Tuesday morning, despite attempts to lift her.

Vets at the wild animal park near Canterbury says she was not in pain but could not keep going and took the difficult decision to put her down.

Affectionately known at the park as 'Auntie Shibi', she came to Howletts from Africa in 1980 aged just four-years-old.
