OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A 15-year-old male giraffe has died at the Oklahoma City Zoo.

Officials say Bogy was found dead by zoo security late Saturday. They say he had been undergoing treatment for a gastrointestinal problem shortly before his death, but the cause of death has not been determined.

Zoo spokeswoman Tara Henson says the results of a necropsy conducted Sunday were not available.

The zoo has four other giraffes, including a 4-month-old named Julu.
