According to reports, people saw one giraffe knock its head as a truck transporting two of the animals drove under a highway bridge. The second giraffe was taken to a clinic.
The local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals confirmed the giraffe had been killed. "All we can ascertain at this stage is severe head trauma. We are continuing our investigation with the view to possibly lay criminal charges against those responsible," SPCA's Rick Allan told Eyewitness News.
