Umoya, one of the dominant female elephants at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, died early Thursday apparently following an altercation with another elephant. “When trainers arrived they found Umoya had been injured and subsequently died shortly thereafter,” said Yadira Galindo, a zoo spokeswoman. The elephant was down on the ground when zookeepers found her. “There were a few injuries that indicated there may have been some sort of aggressive interaction with another elephant,” Galindo said.
