Beloved orangutan, BB, dies at Madison’s Vilas Zoo

The staff members at the Vilas Zoo were obviously distraught when BB the orangutan, one of the most popular animals at the Madison zoo for the past 15 years, died Sunday. But they found solace in the way she died: peacefully while taking a nap after lunch.

BB was 40, which is considered geriatric for an orangutan. To the end, she loved people.
