Way too young to have died. What would be the reason?

RIP Hani. This Siberian tiger wasn't even three years old yet. I will be interested in nercropsy results as to why she passed over night. Her sister should be checked by the vets to determine her state of health,
This is very sad!
Noted with thanks Cher.

Something is wrong in Vancouver. This tiger was much too young.

A sad time but as the symptoms seem to be the same as the other tiger who died I am wondering if there is some sort of illness in the tigers in the zoo hopefully the autopsy will show this or rule it out.

sad, I don't want to see any animal in a zoo at all, not natural for them and that's may cause them die untimely.

thanks Cher

Sad to hear the news & there has to be a cause of death which hopefully can shed some light to prevent this from happening.
