African Lion at Greenville Zoo succumbs to health complications

Saied, an African Lion at the Greenville Zoo in South Carolina, passed away this morning at the age of 15. He had been struggling with multiple health issues, including a degenerative joint disease and spinal neurological problem. Despite receiving treatment, recent tests showed that his condition had worsened, affecting his quality of life. After consulting with zoo staff, the decision was made to euthanize him humanely.

Saied had arrived at the Greenville Zoo with his brother Chuma from the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia in 2010. He was considered the dominant male of the pair. Zoo officials are closely monitoring Chuma as he adjusts to the loss of his brother. Plans are being made for a remembrance event for Saied at the zoo.

The Greenville Zoo expressed their sadness over the loss of Saied and asked for understanding as they continue to gather more information. Their focus is now on ensuring the well-being of the animals in their care and supporting Chuma during this difficult time. Updates on any future plans for honoring Saied will be shared with the public as they become available. The zoo appreciates the community’s support during this challenging period.
