Zoo Knoxville officials announced the death of a 13-year-old lionness named Ann on Saturday, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. She died of suspected complications after undergoing surgery for an infection.

Ann was born at the zoo in 2006. The zoo’s other female African lion, Elsa, died last year. Two male lions remain: Jimmy and Zarin.
