PEORIA — Glen Oak Zoo is mourning the loss of another lion.

 

Leah, the last member of a three lion pride at the zoo, was approaching 20 years old when a golf ball sized lump appeared on her shoulder in march.

 

After removing the growing lump, Leah’s health declined rapidly because of her old age.   

 

Captive lions live about 16 years which is much longer than their wild relatives.

 

Zoo officials do not yet know how long they will have to wait for new lions.
