Zoo not to give another giraffe

Alipore zoo will not give Nandankanan a replacement for Sundar, the 11-year-old giraffe that died while being transported to Orissa. "We have decided not to give another giraffe to Nandankanan, not after knowing that callousness led to Sundar's death,' forest minister Ananta Roy said on Monday. The minister said the team from Nandankanan did not adhere to basic safety norms while transporting the giraffe to Orissa from Alipore zoo as part of an exchange programme.
