ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Sad news from the Rio Grande Zoo: Kachina, their female snow leopard, has died.
The 14-year-old snow leopard was diagnosed with an inoperable terminal cancer in January.
The BioPark says she was well-cared for and loved all the way until the end.
Kachina had been at the zoo since 2003 and was the companion to 15-year-old Azeo. Together the pair had seven litters.
