Fiona the Hippo‘s dad Henry has handed away.
The heartbreaking announcement was made on the Cincinnati Zoo’s Instagram account Tuesday.
“We’re very unhappy to announce that our beloved Henry has died,” the zoo’s message to followers started. “Our care group did every part they might for him however he continued to drop some pounds and was turning into weaker and weaker. After an examination this morning, vet workers decided that Henry’s high quality of life wouldn’t enhance and made the tough choice to humanely euthanize him.”
This information comes simply over three months after Fiona the hippo had a household reunion with dad Henry. In an Instagram put up again in July, the Cincinnati Zoo shared a photograph of the reunion detailing what occurred.
“Household reunion! We have by no means been extra excited a few put up! BiFi (the ability duo identify that is getting used for Bibi and Fiona) was joined by Henry this morning for the primary time,” the put up stated. “The three had been launched in Hippo Cove’s outside pool earlier than the Zoo opened, supervised by their care group. The brief introduction went effectively. Bibi intervened when Henry received too near Fiona, which was precisely what we had been hoping to see.”
Sending our like to Fiona, Bibi and the Cincinnati Zoo.
