2013-03-22: Samson, the young male elephant who was diagnosed with a deadly virus at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore late last month, has continued to recover in recent days and has "turned a very positive corner" in his treatment, according to zoo officials. "His energy levels are very close to normal again, he┬┤s much brighter and a lot of his symptoms have either gone away or are nearly gone," Michael McClure, general curator for the zoo┬┤s animal department, said Thursday.
