49-year-old female chimp dies at Toledo Zoo

(AP) 3 hours ago

TOLEDO, Ohio The Toledo Zoo says one of the oldest female chimpanzees in the North American zoo population has died.

Fifi, a 49-year-old chimp, died Friday. Fifi came to the Toledo Zoo in 1963 at the age of three and was easily identified by a small white toy alligator she carried for nine years.

The zoo said Sunday that Fifi's keepers noticed Thursday morning that she seemed stiff and tired. After improving early Friday, she then appeared disoriented in the afternoon and then deteriorated rapidly until she died.

A necropsy revealed possible blood vessel abnormalities in her brain. Further tests will be done.
