Bhubaneswar: Amidst elephant endotheliotropic herpes virus (EEHV) scare claiming four pachyderms in less than a month at the Nandankanan Zoological Park (NZP) on the city outskirts here, a female hippopotamus succumbed to her illness at the wildlife park today.

According to NZP sources, the female hippo was observed with loss of appetite and a swelling in on the left side of her face near the mouth on Monday last.

The herbivorous, semi-aquatic mammal was first treated with antibiotics orally and later with injectibles, however, the animal showed no improvement and succumbed at 9.30 AM, the sources added.
