Zookeepers mourn death of world’s oldest orangutan

 The world’s oldest known orangutan, a 61-year-old Sumatran female called Inji, has died at her home at the Oregon Zoo. 

Although her exact birth date is unknown, Inji had been at the zoo since 1961 and was suspected to be a 1-year-old at the time, according to a statement from the zoo. She was brought to the U.S. through wild animal trade that was legal at the time.
