Hatari (Baby) was born wild 1959, captured 1959 .
"It has been reported that Hatari, an African elephant living at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, was put down in July of this year (1998). It is our understanding that Hatari was very sick, unable to support herself, and keepers were unable to properly care for her in their new management system.
Their new management system restricted keepers from entering Harati's stall for treatment. Approximately five months passed without active intervention. Reportedly, she was suffering from arthritis and by the time they did intervene, her joints were completely degenerated; there was no cartilage left. Additionally, the experimental drug treatment being used caused extensive tissue damage to her ears.
They made the decision to euthanize Hatari." //Elephants.com
