Madhubala, Karachi’s Second Elephant, Catches Fatal Infection, A Month After Noor Jehan’s Demise

After Noor Jehan, an elephant at the Karachi Zoo, recently passed away and the zoo’s conditions came under fire, Madhubala, another elephant, developed a potentially fatal infection.

After blood samples were taken by a team of veterinarians from the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Madhubala, who had been living alone since April following the death of her partner Noor Jehan, was found to have the infection. It is thought that Noor Jehan, whose postmortem report stated that she passed away from a blood parasite disease, was the source of the infection.

Until additional samples are taken, Madhubala will continue to receive treatment for the illness, according to an unnamed zoo official. An advanced stage of infection is being avoided through various measures.

A container is being prepared for Madhubala, who will receive training on the more than an acre of land that Karachi authorities have designated for her at Safari Park. The initial stages of moving Madhubala to the new location are currently underway because the designated area has been unused and overgrown for the past 50 years.
