MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA)- Montgomery Zoo officials have released the results of a necropsy into baby rhino Ethan's death.
Officials say the results received on the Indian Rhinoceros calf that died on October 18th came back with normal limits.
Ethan was apparently a healthy animal that died a sudden death. Multiple samples were sent to various independent labs.
Additional samples have been sent to the state lab and those results will be forthcoming.
"Losing Ethan has been a heart-wrenching situation for our staff and the entire Montgomery community," said Doug Goode, Zoo Director. "Having the first successfully born artificially inseminated Indian rhino calf was pretty significant to the Indian Rhinoceros species. This was a difficult loss."
