NEWSLINK: 18 animals have died at the Baton Rouge Zoo in four months

Federal officials are putting together a report on the deaths of animals at the Baton Rouge Zoo.

Since the start of 2016, eighteen animals have died. Most recently, a juvenile Malayan tiger died. The tiger, named Hadiah, died in mid-April.

"This death was much unexpected," zoo veterinarian, Dr. Gordon Pirie, said in a WBRZ and WBRZ.com report on the death. "(earlier in the day on the date the tiger died), we were performing routine rounds with a LSU veterinary intern and she appeared to be exhibiting normal behavior and in great health."
