Meet Marilyn, from Wellington SPCA, who needs a new home.
"I am currently in a foster home with my sisters, and this is what my foster mum has to say "Marilyn likes being picked up and cuddled and is always keen to sit on my knee. Would make a great pair with Miriam." I would do best in a quiet and stable home, with people around to offer me support. I will need time and patience. I would not settle with a busy home or one with young children. If this sounds like your family, please get in touch and we will put you in touch with our foster mum."
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.
