A New York zoo’s only adult male giraffe died when it fractured the neck after getting stuck in a support structure for the gate of its enclosure, according to a report in USA Today. The outlet carried a statement from Seneca Park Zoo in which the facility said that the six-year-old giraffe named Parker was unresponsive when the officials found the animal. Veterinary personnel responded immediately but were unable to save the majestic animal, the zoo further said in its statement.
“The possibility of this kind of event happening was unforeseen and unprecedented,” zoo superintendent Steve Lacy said in the statement.
