In November 1999, Lady became pregant after breeding by Casey. She carried the calf to term but was unable to give birth. After unsuccessful injections of oxytocin, trans-rectal and trans-abdominal ultrasounds were repeated in June/July 2005 to reassess the calf. In December 2006 a vesibulotomy was performed to remove the mummified fetus after the onset of labor. //Kansas City Zoo, Elephant Medical Records.
