St. Louis Zoo treating elephant Donna for tuberculosis

2011-04-11 - St. Louis, United States.

St. Louis Zoo says it´s a mystery how 40-year-old Asian elephant Donna contracted tuberculosis. No other elephant or keeper has tested positive for the illness. "We assume elephants get TB like any other animal," said the zoo´s director of animal health, Dr. Randy Junge. "An animal or human who has TB blows it out and another animal can pick it up. It takes prolonged contact. But we have a closed herd with no animals coming or going."

Elephant virus at St. Louis Zoo has all zoos worried

The virus that has a 2-year-old St. Louis Zoo elephant fighting for her life is a medical mystery. Scientists do not know how it is spread. They do not have a proven cure. The virus is often fatal. It seems to target the young. Since 2000, it has killed about one in five elephant calves born in U.S. zoos, according to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. And because breeding elephants in captivity is so difficult and so important to the endangered species, the virus is especially troubling.
