Baby Giraffe Dies in Habitat Accident

The zoo said a baby giraffe whose April birth at Dallas Zoo was watched live by more than two million people worldwide died on Tuesday. The zoo said in a statement that as the giraffe herd was shifting inside for the night, Kipenzi made a sharp turn, ran into the edge of the habitat perimeter and broke three vertebra in her neck. The zoo said, "While she was only here for a few months, Kipenzi was a beacon of light for her species and for the millions who watched her birth live on Animal Planet."
