Memorial to our Cougar

Our staff would like to say good-bye to a member of our wildlife family.

Dago the Cougar died July 27, 2010 at the age of 18.
He came to us in October of 1992. He had been confiscated by authorities as an illegal pet. At that time he was suffering from malnutrition and joint problems. He had life-long hip issues because of this. Dago in 1993

He will be greatly missed by staff and volunteers, as well as by all of the thousands of visitors who have been coming to see him for the past 18 years.
