A she-camel of the Dehiwala Zoological Gardens died on Saturday while being treated on the advice of the veterinary surgeon assuming that she had been pregnant.

However, according to Zoo Director Prabhaswara Senanka  Gunarathne the female camel  named  Rosy was later found not pregnant at the time of the incident and a full probe is expected on the circumstances that led to the death.

It has cost the Zoo Rs. 60,000 in terms of expenses involved in the veterinary surgeon’s fee, medicine and other requisites. An investigation is due to be carried out to establish the cause of the death of the camel. Rosy who hails from Russia is eight years old. Her partner Bindu will now be left unaccompanied.

    Why do you have to get external vets? Doesn't the zoo have vets of their own?

    Dismiss the Vet before something happen to other animals.

    Why is everyone relating every story to politics? I can't beleive how nobody sympathized the fate of the camel! Please don't be like this... What happened to Sri Lankans who have kind and loving hearts?

    vet who cannot diagnose whether the camel is pregnant or not ??? ask him to clean the toilet instead of treating animals.

    I think the people come here want to see only political news - i am always disgusted how they relate everything to politics regardless of the context.

    Bring in another camel right now.

    Who diagnosed her as pregnant ? What did the Surgeon do ? how can he be paid when he cannot identify the pregnancy of an animal ? The Zoo authorities should claim damages fm those responsible for the death.
