Los Angeles Zoo had recently to make a hard decision: to put down a sick elderly lion pair simultaneously so neither of them will have to continue its life alone.
The inseparable couple’s together life lasted six beautiful years, and they both were 21-year-old.
Health staff and animal care had no wish to act in that way, but apparently, they had no other choice, as the poor animals were suffering from various illnesses, which had a bad impact on their life quality.
Hubert came from Chicago’ local Zoo, and Kalisa from Seattle local Zoo, and they met each other six years ago at the Los Angeles Zoo.
Since that day, they’re farming a strong and clear bond and loving relationship, and were inseparable.
Both as individuals and as partners, the majestic lions were charismatic.
They were always together, no one saw them apart from each other.
Their mutual attention and care and gentle love to each other were so amazing. The beautiful pair liked to rest together, often nuzzle and cuddle each other.
The average life duration of a lion at the zoo is about 16 years, so this duo has lived more than expected.
Kalisa and Hubert could live 21 years, charming with their beauty and magnificent bond to the Zoo visitors.
Their pure and unconditional love lasted over six years, and during these years they gave each other their warmth and affection.
It’s so heartbreaking to say to this wonderful pair goodbye.
The LA Zoo visitors will miss them badly.
R.I.P. Hubert and Kalisa.
