Komala, (born in Mysore Zoo) was dated to be shipped to Yerevan Zoo in October 2003 as a gift from the President of India to the President of Armenia.
But some days before the scheduled transport she died in agony after what officials at Mysore zoo in southern India are calling a conspiracy by insiders. They suspect she could be the latest victim of poisoning by disgruntled employees, and, perhaps, a persistent campaign to discredit the zoo for reasons unknown.
