Poll: Should Wellington Zoo replace its Lions?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.
Both lionesses had been closely monitored by veterinary staff over the past 18 months due to age-related health concerns, and Djane’s health recently deteriorated.
Lions have been part of Wellington Zoo community since it opened in 1906, when the Zoo was gifted a male lion called King Dick.
Wellington Zoo said it would look at starting a new pride of lions in the future, but it was likely to be awhile until a firm plan was in place.
