Cezar 1998 - January 9th 2014

Yorkshire Wildlife Park announces with deep sadness today that Cezar, one of the famous lions rescued from Romania, has died.
Cezar had been in declining health for several months with increasing joint and mobility problems related to age and potentially to his hard life in Romania before he was rescued by YWP.

The decision was taken today by a team of vets in conjunction with the Directors, animal staff and the Park’s Ethics Committee at the Park to put Cezar to sleep on welfare grounds.

It was the plight of Cezar in particular and his family who were living in appalling conditions in run down Oradea Zoo that was highlighted in 2009 – 2010.
His story moved thousands of people to donate over £150,000 to bring Cezar and 12 other lions back to the purpose built Lion Country at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
The 13 lions arrived at the Park in 2010 and were slowly rehabilitated into their new home under much veterinary care and careful husbandry by Park staff.
The lions regained their health and strength and enjoyed life in Lion Country – and hundreds of thousands of people have been to see them. Cezar enjoyed life with his mate Allis and his sons Ares and Adel, until recently when his health started to affect his quality of life.

There are now 11 Lions in Lion Country: Johnny Junior and his pride Carla, Julie, Crystal and Frieda, Allis and her two sons Ares and Adel and Maria and her two sons Dani and Simba. The Park lost its oldest resident Johnny Senior last year who died aged 30.
The Directors of Yorkshire Wildlife Park would like to thank the veterinary teams from Portland House Veterinary Group from Retford and the International Zoo Veterinary Group who have worked and supported staff to help improve the health of Cezar and the other lions since their arrival and particularly over the past few difficult days.

The Park would also like to thank the dedicated staff team who have loved and cared for Cezar since his arrival and who today grieve the loss of one who was a favourite at the Park for staff and visitors alike.
