LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Officials say a 62-year-old elephant that died last month at the Little Rock Zoo tested positive for tuberculosis.
The elephant, named Jewell, was euthanized after staff members discovered her lying on her side, unable to get up. Necropsy results show that tissue from the elephant tested positive for tuberculosis, though the official cause of death will be listed as euthanasia due to arthritis and severe musculoskeletal problems.
Susan Weinstein, the state public health veterinarian, says zoo employees who had contact with the elephants will be tested for tuberculosis. Weinstein tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1dZfE4I ) that zoo visitors aren't at risk because they did not have close contact with the elephants.
The animal-welfare group In Defense of Animals is asking that the zoo's remaining elephant, Zina, be moved to another facility.
