Neglect and Subsequent Death of Casimiro the Lion

Casimiro the lion has now, after years in captivity and after severe negligence, died in the Guariche zoo in Venezuela.

Over a period of weeks, Casimiro's health deteriorated, allegedly due to a degenerative disease. According to reports, the lion had been evaluated by several veterinarians, but very little seems to have been done to improve his health condition.

Casimiro should not have been left to die on the concrete floor of a zoo cage.
