DENVER (AP) - A female Asian elephant has been euthanized after it stopped eating and drinking for two days.

Denver Zoo officials say blood tests indicated the elephant named Kimbo had kidney failure and was euthanized on Friday.

Zoo officials say Kimbo was believed to have been born in Thailand in 1970. She came to the Denver Zoo in 2012.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/ot7eq8e), Kimbo’s appetite began to diminish over the past few days and she refused food and water.
