San Antonio Zoo Black Leopard Dies

A black leopard at the San Antonio Zoo has died of unknown causes after a brief illness, according to zoo spokeswoman Debbie Vanskike.

Gina, 11, died Friday, leaving behind a male companion named Sam. Both leopards came to the zoo in 2007 from a rescue group, Vanskike said.

Tests will likely take several weeks to reveal the cause of the leopard’s death.
