A giraffe at Assam State Botanical Garden cum Zoo in Guwahati died on Thursday night.
The giraffe which was brought from Mysore in 2020 died at around 10.30 pm.
According to reports, two giraffes were brought from Mysore in 2020 but after one year one of the giraffes named ‘Bijoy’ died.
The giraffe named as Rongili here was brought from Patna in 2019, and died at around 10.30 pm on Thursday after suffocating in an unfortunate accident.
The giraffe’s body has been sent for post mortem.
It was after eight years that the Assam Zoo got three giraffes- one from Patna and two from Mysore.
As part of an exchange programme, a female giraffe was brought to Assam Zoo from Sanjay Gandhi Jaivik Udyan in Patna two years ago.
The exchange programme was approved by Delhi’s Central Zoo Authority.
