BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Zoo is saying goodbye to one of its sea lions.
Dallas, who was 21 years old, passed away after having a respiratory problem.
The sea lion had been receiving treatment for the issue. The results of his necropsy were inclusive.
Dallas first came to The Buffalo Zoo in 2005. Typically, a sea lion lives for 15-20 years in the wild, but with managed care, they usually live to be 20 to 30 years old.
The other sea lions at the zoo are in good health.
