Bad news from the elephant enclosure at Zurich Zoo again: a newborn bull elephant died in the night from Saturday to Sunday, as the Zurich Zoo announced on Monday.
The elephant calf will be pathologically examined in the coming days to determine the exact cause of death, as Zurich Zoo wrote in a statement on Monday. Last summer, several young elephants died at the zoo as a result of a herpes infection. “Currently, nothing suggests a connection with the viral diseases,” says the zoo statement. (SDA/jwg)
