WINNIPEG - Assiniboine Park Zoo has euthanized one of its long-term residents.
Max, a 16 year old cougar who's been at the zoo since 2004, was put down because of quality of life.
The cat has received specialized care for kidney failure and arthritis for several years.
He was more recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and diabetes.
The zoo says Max was loved by his care team but all these health issues were starting to take a toll.
