Record-breaking hot weather claimed the life of a black buck in Maharajbag Zoo on Wednesday night.
According to Forest Department, workers found a black buck dead when they went inside the enclosure to feed it on Thursday morning.

A team of veterinarians performed post-mortem (PM) at the spot. The exact cause of death of the animal will be known after getting the PM report but initially the department believed that extreme scorch might be the likely reason behind its death.

After the incident, the department swung in action and ensured proper heat-resistance arrangements for the animals housed in the zoo.
