Comments / pictures

At the end of October 1975 Nobby escaped from the grounds of the zoo. He was followed to a nearby residential area where an attempt was made to tranquillise him. He was in Musth at the time and the tranquilliser had no effect. Zoo officials had no alternative but to shoot their only Asian bull. (Paul A. Rees)
