DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Zoo has lost a longtime resident with the death of a Sumatran tiger.

Zoo officials on Thursday announced the death of a 19-year-old big cat named Paul.

Veterinarian Tim Storms says the tiger had undergone a routine medical procedure Wednesday, but never recovered from the anesthesia. Storms also says the tiger suffered from age-related complications.

Paul was born in Washington at the National Zoo, spent time at the Detroit Zoo then was acquired by the Dallas Zoo in 1999.

Paul was one of four tigers at the Dallas Zoo.
