Ligers Are Actually Real Animals, And Utah’s Hogle Zoo Was Home To One Of The Most Famous Hybrids

If you grew up in Utah, you might remember Shasta the Liger. Children in the 1950s and 1960s were lucky enough to see her in person; those in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, saw Shasta’s stuffed remains at the zoo.

Did you see Shasta when she lived at Hogle Zoo? We’d love to hear your memories in the comments!
