Jengo the giraffe at Ramat Gan Safari dies due to medical complications

Jengo the giraffe, who arrived to the Ramat Gan Safari at 18-months-old in May, died this weekend due to medical complications, a safari spokeswoman announced on Sunday.

Surrounded by globally renowned male fertility experts, the two-year-old giraffe underwent surgery to correct a congenital defect in his penis on Thursday, the spokeswoman said. Although the surgery appeared to have gone well and Jengo recovered from his anesthesia with no noticeable challenges, approximately 24 hours after the surgery he collapsed.

Despite numerous attempts to treat and revive him, Jengo ultimately died, according to the spokeswoman.
