Delhi Zoo has lost a three-year-old giraffe whose neck got stuck in a Y-shaped trunk of a tree next to the enclosure wall.

The mishap happened on Wednesday when the giraffe was trying to pull some twigs from the tree.

“We tried to rescue the animal by cutting of the branch of the tree, but the giraffe had already injured its neck,” said a senior Zoo official.
