Thumbsdown: Dying in captivity 

The Indianapolis Zoo euthanized Chugach, a 20-year old Kodiak bear, this week. According to zoo officials, the bear was suffering from a degenerative joint disease that worsened this month, leaving the bear unable to walk. It has been a rather tragic few months at the zoo; over the summer, Phoenix, a 20-year old female dolphin, died of unexplained causes, and two weeks ago more than a dozen small animals were killed in an early morning fire.
