Rest in Peace Gordy

The Como Zoo lost a wonderful animal last week when Gordy the gorilla died unexpectedly. Gordy was 23 years old. The morning of 19 April, he was acting normal, eating his breakfast in holding while the primate keepers cleaned the gorilla exhibit. After a routine weekly meeting with our veterinarian, zoo keepers went to let the animals into their exhibits when they found Gordy unresponsive.
