PROVIDENCE, R,I (WLNE) – Roger Williams Zoo announced that their 25-year-old dromedary camel, Sasha, passed away.

According to the zoo, she had been showing signs of illness, and it eventually worsened.

Animal care did everything they could to provide medical and physical assistance to Sasha.

Ultimately, it was decided that euthanasia was the only human option left.

Sasha arrived at the zoo 24 years ago and was a favorite among guests, staff, and volunteers.

The zoo staff said they will miss Sasha’s big personality and silly faces she would make when eating her favorite foods.

Zoo staff encourages people to share a photo or a fond memory of Sasha on social media.
