2013-12-04: Sanook, the 11-month-old Asian elephant calf at Melbourne Zoo has died after becoming entangled in a favourite toy. "The CCTV footage shows that at 7pm while playing with the tyre, Sanook managed to manoeuvre it in an unusual way that caused his head to become caught," Melbourne Zoo director Kevin Tanner said in the statement.
