    EEHV has struck again in Europe. This time the young male, Buba (born at Madrid in 2013) at Selwo Aventura in Malaga has died suddenly. Statement taken from Selwo's Facebook:

    Those are some very sad moments for all of us, we are appalled by the sudden death of our dear buba, the young Asian elephant that came in September 2015 to selwo adventure from the zoo of Madrid. They're analyzing the causes of his death, although the most likely cause is a deadly virus of elephant that mainly affects young animals. We want to share with you all this sad moment, the final goodbye of our dear buba
