After 1941, Ziggy was uncontrollable, and could not be kept outside, so he stayed inside his stable from 1941-1971, when through donations, the facilities were rebuilt in a way, so he could safely have acces to an outside enclosure.
1975: Fell into the eight-foot dry moat inside the stable, and was severly injured. Lewis write in his book, "I Loved Rogues,"
Stretching as far as he could, he lashed at a keeper across the moat, lost his balance and pitched in headfirst.
On October 28, 1975, he died.
