The Brookfield Zoo has announced the loss of Leah, a 37-year-old bald eagle who lived at the zoo's children zoo for 31 years.

She was euthanized Wednesday due to a prolonged respiratory problem that was complicated by her advanced age.

In 1974, Leah was found in Minnesota with an eye injury. She spent four years at Lincoln Park zoo before arriving at Brookfield Zoo in 1979.
