Farewell, Katya

The Buffalo Zoo is saddened to report the death of one of its Eurasian lynx, Katya.

The Zoo's veterinary staff determined that Katya was suffering from age-related organ failure. The 16-year-old lynx was humanely euthanized on March 25.

Kayta arrived at the Buffalo Zoo long with her sister, Larissa, in 2008. The pair were moved to the Zoo's brand new lynx exhibit in Arctic Edge, presented by TOPS, last fall.

Well-loved by Zoo visitors and staff alike, Katya will be truly missed. Larissa will remain on exhibit in Arctic Edge.
