Baby Elephant 'Dumbo' Dies After Breaking His Legs at Thai Zoo
A baby elephant at a Phuket Zoo in Thailand has died after he broke both his back legs. He had a digestive tract infection at the time that weakened him and led to his death, according to a vet.
He was so weak that he collapsed under his own weight and broke both of his back legs while trying to free himself from mud, Phuket Zoo Manager Pichai Sakunsorn told the Phuket News. The incident occurred on April 13.
