(WISH) A lion has suffocated another lion to death at the Indianapolis Zoo.
An adult female lion, Zuri, inflicted the injury on Nyack, a 10-year-old male lion, the zoo said Friday. Nyack died Monday morning in the outdoor yard before the zoo opened.
Animal care staff heard an unusual amount of roaring from the outdoor yard and found Zuri being aggressive with Nyack. A younger female lion, their 3-year-old daughter, Sukari, was also in the yard at the time.
