Pairi Daiza is in mourning. The park has indeed communicated a sad news Friday on Facebook. “Dear friends, everyday life can make us waver from immense joy to great sadness. A little over a month ago we announced the birth of a lion cub. This little heart is no longer with us, ”begins the publication.
The caregivers specify the circumstances of the death of the small animal: “He died despite the care provided by veterinarians as soon as the first symptoms appeared (weakness and hypothermia). The autopsy and the histopathology suggest that Kimbo was carried away by a neonatal virus ”.
The news of Kimbo’s death caused a stir among park visitors. “With all my heart with you”, “Courage to the healers”, or even “What sadness”, they commented among others.
