The grandmother of famed, ill-fated gorilla Harambe has been euthanized at age 49.

Josephine, the matriarch of Zoo Miami's gorilla collection, had been struggling with health problems for years.

Her grandson, Harambe, became famous worldwide after Cincinnati zookeepers put him to death after he attacked a child that fell into his exhibit.
