TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa Zoo officials say a jaguar has been euthanized after it suffered from age-related health issues.

A news release from the zoo said that Bebeto, a male jaguar believed to be more than 20 years old, died in his exhibit holding area surrounded by caregivers Tuesday. The zoo said officials decided to euthanize the jaguar after “closely monitoring age-related health and mobility declines that quickly advanced to compromise his quality of life.”

The Tulsa Zoo received Bebeto from the Fort Worth Zoo in Texas in 2007.
