ZooMontana announced Friday on Facebook that one of its red pandas, Daisy, has died.

Daisy was 14 years old and died after a bout with cancer.

She lived in the zoo with another red panda, Duli.

Here's the full post:

We are devastated to report the death of Daisy, our incredible and gentle female red panda. At 14, she lived an active and long life, but in the end, cancer took over. Our hearts go out to our wonderful animal caregivers and our hard working veterinarian staff. They work so hard every day to ensure only the best for our animals. You can expect that Duli, our male, will be receiving quite a bit of extra zookeeper love and attention in the coming weeks.

RIP Daisy, we're all going to miss you.

Thank you Keeper Bri for this wonderful photo of Daisy.
