Zoo update:

Thursday, July 19, 2018

Dear friends,

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kitwana, one of our male Fennec foxes.

Kitwana had a pre-existing permanent disability, and an enormous amount of thought, time, and effort was incorporated into his daily care.  However, due to a recent decline in his health, we followed the recommendations from our veterinary team and made the difficult decision to say goodbye.  

Quality of life and compassionate care is something we take great pride in providing for all the animals at Happy Hollow.  The decision to humanely euthanize an animal is never one that we take lightly.   

We thank you all for your support with this sad news, and we especially thank our zoo staff for their deep commitment to Kitwana, and all of our animals.
