Jack Hanna is retiring from television and public life after his family announced the famous zookeeper is suffering from dementia.
'Jungle Jack' Hanna officially resigned from his position as director emeritus of Ohio's Columbus Zoo and Aquarium last December, where he worked for over 42 years.
The famous zoologist's family shared a letter on social media, revealing his diagnosis, which they believe has now progressed rapidly into Alzheimer's disease. In the statement, the family says Hanna will no longer be able to participate in public life, where he made a huge impact on people's lives with his funny antics with exotic animals.
