freakMIAMI – One of Zoo Miami’s very own has passed away following what they are calling a freak accident.

A young male giraffe named “Wesley,” born last May at the zoo, had to be euthanized on Tuesday after he had lodged his head between two posts.

“He lowered his neck and wedged his head and panicked and as he panicked, he pulled his neck and obviously caused some traumatic injury to his spinal cord and neck,” said Ron Magill of Zoo Miami told CBS4’s Ted Scouten.

It all happened while another giraffe was undergoing a procedure.  More
