The Little Zoo’s Beloved Salt Has Died

January 17, 2019
January 17, 2019 - Gulf Shores, AL - (OBA®) - The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo has lost one of its most treasured and popular animals. Salt, the 17-year-old female Amur (Siberian) tiger was euthanized January 6 at 3:45 p.m. According to Zoo Director Dr. Adam Langston, also the zoo veterinarian, “While we await a final pathology report, Salt suffered from severe hindlimb weakness most likely caused by a spinal cord disease. For the last several months, as her walking became more labored, medications were administered to improved her quality of life, but sadly her condition worsened beyond help. The difficult decision was made to end her suffering.” Zoo Curator Cyndi Johnson and many of the zookeepers who cared for Salt during her later years were also with her when she passed. Said Dr. Langston, “She will forever live on in our hearts and memories.”
