( CNN) Little Mac, Santa Barbara Zoo’s last elephant, has been euthanized after a series of health issues, the zoo said.

After two weeks of a sharp decline in her health, the zoo decided to enter Little Mac into hospice care several days before her death.
“Unfortunately, we have been grappling with increasing medical problems that affect her health, behavior, and overall well-being.” Dr. Julie Barnes, the zoo’s director of animal care and health, said in a press statementbefore Little Mac’s demise. “We held out hope that she would bounce back, but her bad days now greatly outnumber her good days.”
