We are sad to announce that due to advanced age, declining health and quality of life considerations, the Zoo bid farewell to our North American bison, Sweetpea, through euthanasia.

Sweetpea was born at the Zoo, and is remembered by her animal care staff and friends as a “gentle giant.”

Animal Care Specialist and Zoo Registrar Linda Tomas summed up the feelings of Zoo staff in her comment: “I will always remember her for her eager anticipation for treats, her happy play with a new tree or pumpkin in the yard and her soft fuzzy head. I miss her and am grateful for having had the chance to be a part of her life.”
