Controversial Elephant Death at San Diego Zoo
NOVEMBER 21, 2011
An animal rights group has called for a federal investigation into the death of an elephant at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Here's the full article from the Los Angeles Times. Umoya, a 21-year-old African elephant, died Thursday, possibly due to injuries suffered during an attack by another elephant. The Northern California-based In Defense of Animals called for the Department of Agriculture, which does inspections of zoos, to investigate Umoya's death.
