SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah’s Hogle Zoo was once home to an uncommon animal known as a liger.

Her name was Shasta. Born in 1948, she was the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger.

Shasta was a star attraction at the zoo during her lifetime, and even afterward!

Check out the video to see what became of Shasta and where you can still see her today.
