The Calgary Zoo has announced with sadness that Mardi the reticulated Giraffe has been euthanized. At 22 years old, she was considered a senior (Giraffes have a life span of 20-25 years) and she lived at the Calgary Zoo since 1991.
It’s always sad when an animal dies, but we know they can’t live forever. The Giraffes in the African Savannah were always a favourite for our family.
