INDIANAPOLIS — A fourth elephant at the Indianapolis Zoo is sick.
The zoo says 12-year-old female African elephant, Zahara, has tested positive for Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes Virus (EEHV), which can cause a deadly disease in elephants. Two elephants at the zoo died from the disease in March.
The team at the Indy zoo is remaining optimistic though, as they caught the virus early in Zahara.
It’s the fourth case of EEHV in elephants at the zoo in nine weeks.
The third elephant, Kedar, tested positive for the virus earlier this month, but the zoo says he is doing well.
