Dallas Zoo elephant dies in Herpes

2023-05-09 - Dallas, United States.

The Dallas Zoo made the heartbreaking announcement Tuesday that one of its elephants has died. The 7-year-old African elephant, Ajabu, passed away Monday after a 12-day battle with a viral infection, according to the zoo. The infection is known as elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV). Ajabu survived a previous infection with EEHV in March 2021. The zoo says that the often-lethal disease is most often found in Asian elephants, but it has begun to show up more in African elephants.

Elephants brought the Dallas Zoo nothing but problems last summer. But soon they'll be at the center of a $30 million African Savanna exhibit that officials hope will silence critics – and even serve as a national model.
The 10-acre attraction, set to open next spring, will house lions, impalas, zebras, ostriches, giraffes, wild dogs, wart hogs – and elephants. Zoo director Gregg Hudson said the exhibit will be on par with a similar display at the acclaimed San Diego Zoo.
