The Calgary Zoo says a baby giraffe, who was born on December 28th, has died. Officials say the male calf, born to six year old Masai giraffe Emara, wasn't nursing and was failing to thrive. A post on the zoo's website goes on to say veterinary teams worked intensely to help the animal by putting him on a feeding tube but he passed away just 48 hours after birth. Initial necropsy results indicate a possible congenital issue. -Tina Giesbrecht
