Remembering Jet

It seems our visitors loved our male Asiatic lion, Jetpur, as much as we did as we’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of sales of memorabilia featuring his photo over the last week.

There are still a few cushions and canvasses, as well as cuddlies and postcards available in our Safari Shop, if you too, would like a memento of the 14-year-old big cat.

Post mortem results have revealed Jetpur died from cancer of the liver and spleen.

Curator Richard Brown said: “Sadly the test results show there was nothing we could have done to prevent his death.”
