Lioness kills father of her cubs at Indianapolis zoo

A lioness has killed the father of her three cubs, suffocating her mate by inflicting injuries to his neck at the Indianapolis Zoo in an attack not fully understood by zoo staff. The lions had been held together at the zoo for eight years, producing three cubs in 2015, and zookeepers had never before noticed any aggression between the two.

The death was “extremely devastating” to zookeepers, the curator of the zoo told reporters. Zoo staff were alerted by “an unusual amount of roaring” coming from the lion pen on Monday and arrived to find the 12-year-old female lion Zuri in a fight with the 10-year-old male lion Nyack. One of their cubs, a 3-year-old female named Sukari, was in the outdoor lion pen at the time.
