We have some sad news out of Busch Gardens Tampa today, the lowland gorilla baby the park was expecting was stillborn yesterday, Jan. 5, 2014 due to unknown causes. Zoo veterinarians and staff are still investigating the situation. The mother Pele (pictured above) has no apparent signs of complications, but is still under close observation by the veterinary and animal care teams at Busch Gardens.

We will keep you informed if we hear anymore.
