The Zoo’s Baby Elephant Has Died
Unfortunate news from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium this afternoon, the baby elephant that was born December 6th passed away at 1:30pm. A sudden illness and infection led to her rapid decline in health.
“At only a few weeks of age, this little calf had already won our hearts. She was a cherished member of our Zoo family, and we are mourning her passing,” said Columbus Zoo President/CEO Tom Stalf in a statement. “I have the privilege of working alongside amazing, compassionate and dedicated animal experts. Our team is going through an exceptionally difficult time with our recent unrelated losses, and we are appreciative of the outpouring of support we receive from near and far.”
