Panther euthanized at Palm Beach Zoo

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX)-  A 17-year-old Florida panther named Colin Patrick has been euthanized at the Palm Beach Zoo after a tumor left him unable to walk.

 A Zoo veterinarian made the announcement Thursday, adding that tests confirmed the panther had advanced bone disease in his spine.

Colin was born at the zoo on St. Patrick's Day in 1995.  He was hand raised by zoo staff and volunteers after being born to a Texas Cougar dad and a Florida panther mom.

Colin was a visitor favorite.
