Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Elephant dies at Columbus Zoo; 5th animal to die since spring
The Columbus Zoo reports the death of a seven-year-old Asian elephant.
The zoo says Ganesh was found dead in his stall Tuesday morning when his keeper arrived for work. The cause of death wasn’t immediately known.
The animal had been on loan from Cincinnati’s zoo, where he was born in 1998. He was moved to Columbus in 2003 after becoming difficult to handle.
The Columbus zoo is said to have better facilities for male elephants. It also has four other Asian elephants.
This is the fifth Columbus Zoo animal to die since the spring. Earlier this year two giraffes and two zebras died at the facility.
