TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center says an African painted dog has died after another dog attacked her.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the dog, named Annie, had been brought to Topeka last week from the Bronx Zoo as a mate for one of the zoo’s male dogs. The attack happened Saturday as Annie was introduced to the other painted dogs.
Things went smoothly when Annie met the alpha male. There also werent problems when the next subordinate male was added to the mix. Topeka Zoo director Brendan Wiley says problems arose when Annie was introduced to a third dog.
