Comments / pictures

2020-09-16: Thi, who was the long-time matriarch of the family herd of Asian elephants at Chester Zoo, had been living with arthritis

Following a period of intensive end-of-life care and an irreversible decline in her condition, the hugely difficult decision was made to put her to sleep.
