† Mame is a dead Female ♀ African savanna elephant (Loxodonta africana), , who died 2003-06-17 at Brookfield Zoo, in United States, . Official death reason described as Musculoskeletal trauma; incinerated.
Mame was born wild 1971, captured 1972 .
"Mame sustained severe injuries during an encounter with another elephant. Following the encounter, veterinary staff closely observed Mame and determined she had suffered disabling injuries to both her front legs. In the professional opinion of the zoo's veterinary staff, the prognosis for a successful recovery in this type of injury is very poor. Vets and animal collection staff were concerned Mame would suffer by any prolonged treatment with very little hope of a recovery. Although it was a difficult decision to euthanize Mame, staff agreed it was the most humane choice."
Before being her new home in the Pachyderm House, Mame resided at the Children's Zoo for three years.
