Shivamogga: Lion Yashwanth aged 11 years died at Tyavarekoppa Lion and Tiger Safari, Shivamogga on Friday.

Ten months ago Asiatic Lion Yashwanth was relocated from Bannerghatta Biological Park to  Tyavarekoppa Lion and Tiger Safari.

Yashwanth died due to Protozoan parasite disease which spoils the platelets in animal.

In 2020 also the disease broke out at Gir National Lion conservation Park in Gujarat, claiming the lives of many lions.

Here in Karnataka also, same disease has claimed the life of Yashwanth. Prior to Yashwanth, a tiger has also died in the same zoo.

Now, Shivamogga zoo has only four lions.
