† Young Tusko is a dead Male ♂ Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), , who died 1962-08-03 at Oklahoma City Zoo, in United States, . Official death reason described as overdosis of LSD.
Young Tusko was born wild 1948.
"Tusko began trumpeting and rushing around the pen, a reaction not unlike the one he had shown the day before (during the placebo shot). However, this time his restlessness appeared to increase for 3 minutes after the injection; then he stopped running and showed signs of marked incoordination. His mate (Judy, a 15-year-old female) approached him and appeared to attempt to support him. He began to sway, his hindquarters buckled, and it became increasingly difficult for him to maintain himself upright. Five minutes after the injection he trumpeted, collapsed, fell heavily on his right side, defecated, and went into status epilepticus."
