EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Kiah, the oldest giraffe at Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Garden, has died at age 29.

The Zoo says the median life expectancy is 20 for a female giraffe in human care.

“As result, she was humanely euthanized due to age-related difficulties that were severely affecting her quality of life,” the Zoo wrote on Facebook.

Earlier this year, the Zoo lost another giraffe, Kizzie.
