The Kordofan giraffe Tufani in Basel Zoo was only four months old: the girl had to be put down because of colon and peritonitis, as Basel Zoo announced on Friday via Instagram.
The cub was euthanized on Thursday. The cause of the finding is currently being clarified, it said.
Tufani was born at Basel Zoo on September 2, 2022 and was doing well at the time. She weighed 60 kilograms at birth.
After Tufani’s death, the group of Kordofan giraffes at Basel Zoo again consists of only three animals. In 2020, a giraffe cub died in an unfortunate fall after claw surgery. (SDA)
