Silverback gorilla dies at Louisville Zoo

Some sad news from the Louisville Zoo.  A gorilla has died.

Frank, a 44-year-old silverback gorilla, had suffered from chronic arthritis and heart disease.  The zoo says Frank's symptoms could no longer be controlled by medication.

Early this week, he was unable to move.  So Thursday the zoo staff euthanized him.

He was transferred from Chicago to the Louisville Zoo in 2002 for the opening of Gorilla Forest.
