TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka Zoo officials say a 58-year-old elephant was euthanized after she couldn’t get up for the second time this week.

Topeka spokeswoman Molly Hadfield says the elephant, Sunda, was euthanized Wednesday morning because of her deteriorating health and quality of life.

The Topeka Capita-Journal reports Sunda lived at the zoo for 52 years, longer than any other animal there.
