Baby Mac

Mac, the baby Asian elephant at the Houston Zoo, died last night with his mother, Shanti, and his aunt, Methai, nearby. He died after a brief battle with the elephant herpes virus, which is also found in wild elephants. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday last month. Along with the entire zoo staff and elephant lovers everywhere, Maggie is very sad.
