Bhubaneswar, Oct 29:

A two-year-old female zebra died in the Nandankanan Zoological Park on the outskirts of Odisha capital today.


According to reports, the animal breathed its last at enclosure number-34 while undergoing treatment.

The cause of the death is yet to be ascertained. The autopsy report will reveal the reason behind the death, said Nandankanan officials.
