Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s newest giraffe, Penny, euthanized by veterinarians

Outlet: Colorado Springs Gazette

Colorado Springs Gazette: Last weekend, Penny was taken to the Colorado State University, where staff from the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences expected to perform surgery Monday on her infected leg. But when veterinarians found that Penny’s hip was dislocated, too, they canceled the surgery and mulled how best to treat her. Ultimately, euthanization was chosen Monday night. The zoo is planning her memorial service.
