5-year-old ABQ BioPark elephant dies from virus

The BioPark news release points out, the other members of the zoo’s elephant herd are not in danger however, 19-month-old calf Jazmine is under close watch by zookeepers.

http://www.kob.com/article/stories/s379151...ml#.VU8m7Ol0x9D

Checking the asianelephant.net database, I see that DAIZY's father is ALBERT (16) and JAZMINE's father is SAMSON (17).
Both bulls were born at African Lion Safari.

The zoo ought to stop being "devastated" (paragraph 8 on the kob.com link) and do the right thing - stop the breeding!

Mice at Albuquerque Zoo sign of needed improvements

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Mice making their home inside some Rio Grande Zoo animal exhibits is a sign of wear and tear and a need for BioPark improvements.

Scurrying about, burrowing in and stealing food — handfuls of mice live inside cages at the zoo, and they’re not supposed to be there.

Sorry, zoos, but this really doesn't do much to make your exhibits - or the elephants' lives - "natural," although I suppose it is some improvement.

ABQ BioPark Zoo First in the Nation to Use New Feeding Technology

The ABQ BioPark Zoo can now feed its animals even when zookeepers are off site, and it's the first zoo in the United States to use this technology.
