Potawatomi Zoo mourns the loss of beloved tiger Flash

Flash, the beloved tiger that has entertained zoo-goers at the Potawatomi Zoo for 14 years, has passed away.

Officials at the Potawatomi Zoo say the 19-year-old Amur Tiger was humanely euthanized Wednesday morning.

Zoo officials say Flash was receiving treatment for arthritis and suspected kidney disease for the last year. 

“Ensuring all Zoo residents enjoy a strong quality of life is our top priority,” said Dr. Ronan Eustace, Zoo Veterinarian. “With Flash’s age and the chronic diseases he was suffering, we determined his quality of life had deteriorated to the point that euthanasia was the only option. This is a very sad time for all of us.”
