“We are in shock and we are all deeply affected by this loss.”

Pairi Daiza announced sad news this Thursday on social media. Petrushka, one of four female walruses in the wildlife park, lost her life when she gave birth. A fetal dystocia is the cause of this double loss and does not leave the two marine mammals unlucky.

“We are in shock and we are all deeply affected by this loss. The baby’s position leaves Petrushka and the baby has no chance. The baby over fifty pounds presents himself very badly. Fetal dystosis, whether in nature or among humans, for these mammals, unfortunately leaves no chance of a favorable outcome, ”explains Tim Bouts, a veterinarian at Pairi Daiza.
