Koala at Taipei Zoo dies at 19

Patrick, one of the oldest koalas at the Taipei Zoo, has died of age-related multiple organ failure, the zoo said Tuesday. He was 19.

Patrick was born at Australia's Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and was sent to the Taipei Zoo in July 1999 when he was two years old.

He began to show a loss of appetite and a lack of energy and died two days later on Monday, according to the zoo.
