Denver Zoo female Asian elephant Mimi has experienced a natural decline in health over the past few months due to her advanced age. Born in India, Mimi's birth date is not known. However she is believed to be at least 53 years old, making her one the oldest elephants in North American zoos. After long deliberations and careful consideration, zoo staff is offering her hospice care, where they will focus on providing her comfort and allow her to choose how she spends her remaining days.
