Siberian Tiger ‘Taebaek’ At Seoul Grand Park Has Passed Away

One Of The Siberian Tigers At Seoul Grand Park, Named ‘Taebaek,’ Has Passed Away

Taebaek was born on May 2, 2018, along with his siblings Baekdu, Hanra, and Geumgang, making him just 6 years old this year. His passing at such a young age is notably early compared to the average lifespan of tigers, which is 15 years.

According to the park authorities, Taebaek had been receiving treatment since February due to poor health conditions. His food intake and activity level had sharply declined recently, leading to a comprehensive health examination under general anesthesia on the 15th of this month. Results from video and hematological analyses revealed a significant deterioration in his bile duct system and liver function. Despite continuous treatment efforts, there was no improvement in his condition.

Seoul Grand Park conducted an autopsy to ascertain the exact cause of Taebaek‘s death and is collaborating with external organizations to conduct precise diagnostics. A space to commemorate Taebaek will be set up in front of the tiger exhibit area until April 28th.
