Oldest Tiger at the Minnesota Zoo Dies
If you’ve ever visited the Minnesota Zoo, chances are you came across Molniy.
Zoo staff say their oldest tiger died Sunday of health complications related to aging.
He was 16 years old, or about 80 in human years.
Molniy came to the Minnesota Zoo in 2002 from the Detroit Zoo.
The big cat suffered from arthritis and actually surpassed the expected lifetime of a wild tiger.
Three tigers remain at the Apple Valley zoo.
