On August 5, Gazaba seemed to communicate with the female elephant and its offspring over the fence before collapsing to the ground at around 4:55 in the afternoon.

The medical team tried to provide first aid to the elephant but by 7 p.m., Gazaba was already unconscious and eventually died. An autopsy was performed the same day, but nothing seemed visibly wrong.
