Rani (24), an inmate of the Gandhi Zoological Park here who was believed to be the oldest lioness in Madhya Pradesh, died Wednesday due to age-related ailments, an official said.
The lioness had lost sight due to old age and was not keeping well for a long time.
Experts from the Jabalpur-based veterinary university tried to save her but she breathed her last Wednesday evening, he said.
The animal had been brought here from Chhatbir Lion Safari, Chandigarh, in 2004, Dr Yadav added.
