Guwahati/IBNS: A female giraffe died due to accidental strangulation in Assam State Zoo in Guwahati on Thursday night.

Assam State Zoo’s Divisional Forest Officer in-charge Ashwini Kumar said that the preliminary inquiry has suggested that it is an accidental death and an inquiry has been initiated into the incident.

"The preliminary inquiry has suggested that the giraffe died due to accidental strangulation. But the actual facts will come in the post-mortem report. The post-mortem has been completed and we are awaiting the post-mortem report," Ashwini Kumar said.

The female giraffe named Anny was transported to the Assam State Zoo from Patna in 2019 under an animal exchange programme.
