Experts Identify Jafari’s Cause of Death

A recent report confirmed that the giraffe that was found dead in mysterious circumstances in its barn at the Greater Vancouver Zoo last month perhaps died of a degenerative brain disease.

It has been confirmed by a team of independent pathologists and zoo experts that the 12-year-old male giraffe that suffered from encephalomalacia, which is apparently connected with bacteria in stomach.

"This vat can be extremely sensitive, and, on occasion, even very small changes in intake or digestion can cause those bacteria to produce toxic substances that can affect the brain", said independent veterinary pathologist Dr. Chelsea Himsworth, while claiming that Jafari was put on a special diet of pellets, hay, and vegetables and perhaps died of no pain.

The news of its death had come as a shocked to one and all since Jafari had no obvious medical conditions. It has even made animal rights groups to come forward and suggest not keeping giraffes in colder climates which affects their tendency to store fat for keeping warm. Prior to Jafari, there have been two more deaths reported in last year, and reason of the same is yet to be found out. After Jafari, now only one giraffe - five-year-old Pompy - is left at the zoo.
