The Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History made the heart-breaking announcement in a Facebook post late last week. In the Facebook post, the staff shared with its zoo patrons they had to make the "difficult decision to humanely euthanize her." Rehn was suffering from kidney failure.

Officials with the Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History explain that Rehn's condition was just getting worse over time. They did not want her to suffer any more pain.

Rehn has been under close medical surveillance during the past year, due to worsening kidney disease. In recent weeks, her condition deteriorated significantly, and the GPZ Veterinary team made the difficult decision to humanely euthanize her.

Rehn was extremely close to her brother Archie. These two were so loved by the staff and visitors of the Great Plains Zoo. They will be dearly missed in the Sioux Empire.
