The world's oldest known Sumatran orangutan has died in an Australian Zoo age 62, leaving behind 54 descendants.

Puan, described as the grand old lady of Perth Zoo, was euthanized on Monday due to age related complications.

She had been at the zoo since 1968, and was officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest of her species in 2016.

A critically endangered species, Sumatran orangutans rarely reach the age of 50 in the wild, the zoos said.

Quoted word for word from the BBC News ceefax page on BBC television.

That's awesome she lived that long . . . but "putting her down" would be a ghastly crime if it was an old (human) lady o.O

Yes it would be sky but remember one of the vets duties is never to let an animal suffer.

Well if the human was only 62 then I guess.

I hate when any animal dies but I gotta admit , she lived a long full life and I doubt if she was in the wild , she would have lived this long.

So sad she was caged all her life with no company of others of her species http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif

Though she lived a long life i have to agree, being in a zoo isn't freedom.
