Lion at Zoo Boise diagnosed with cancer

Posted 4:03 p.m. Thursday

— Officials at Zoo Boise say one of the three lions in the African Plains Exhibit is being treated for cancer and the prognosis is unclear.

Officials announced Thursday that Jabari, a 14-year-old male, will not be outside in the public exhibit most days as he's treated for lymphoma.

Zoo officials say the two female lions will continue to be in the public exhibit.

Jabari came to Zoo Boise in 2008.
