Azizi, April the Giraffe’s youngest calf, unexpectedly dies
GRAND SALINE, Texas (CNN) - Azizi, the youngest calf of April the Giraffe, has unexpectedly died.
The East Texas Zoo announced the calf died of a twisted gut. The condition was unpreventable.
Azizi had recently been treated for a parasitic issue and died during a veterinary exam.
The calf, who was a little more than 18 months old, was born during a livestream of April’s birth at Animal Adventure Park in New York.
Both zoos issued statements mourning the loss of the young giraffe.
