Ozzie, the world’s oldest male gorilla, has passed away at the age of 61.
He was found d#ad by his care team at the Atlanta zoo on Tuesday, January 25, 2022.
The zoo management, in a statement, said the lowland gorilla began showing signs of low appetite last week. The zoo’s veterinary team treated Ozzie for symptoms including facial swelling, weakness and inability to eat or drink fluids.
He was the world’s oldest male gorilla and the third-oldest gorilla in the world. 📷: EPA
