August 1, 1998 - June 4, 2015
Parents: Leon (father), Nala (mother)
Place of Birth: Charlotte Metro Zoo
Sara was born on August 1st 1998 to Leon(father) & Nala(mother) at the Charlotte Metro Zoo. Sara came to our sanctuary from a friend who became concerned about the overall exploitation of big cats and asked if we would care for her, which we agreed to.
It is with a heavy heart we share the loss of Sara. The decision to end her suffering was made today after a short illness and veterinary examination. It was determined that she was suffering from renal failure, a common problem with all cats as they age. Sara had spent here entire life at Suzie’s Pride Big Cat Sanctuary and was loved by all that met her because of her strong spirit, striking beauty, and playfulness. She will be greatly missed.
