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.

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.
