Wellington Zoo loses much-loved Tiger

Wellington Zoo is mourning the death of a much-loved female Sumatran tiger, who has been a popular attraction at the zoo for almost 20 years. Life sciences manager Paul Horton says Cantik suffered from a malignant adrenal tumour along with severe arthritis, and was unlikely to survive any invasive treatment so staff decided to euthanise her.


ER Construction are proud to have been a part of the Wellington Zoo Asia Precinct development which included Cantik’s Tiger public viewing enclosure. We would like to extend out condolences to the Wellington Zoo community.
