6-day-old endangered gorilla baby dies at New Orleans zooLess than a week after celebrating the birth of a critically endangered gorilla, the zoo in New Orleans is mourning its death. The baby western lowland gorilla born Friday died on Wednesday, Audubon Zoo spokeswoman Katie Smith said Thursday. “There are many risks involved with gorilla births and unfortunately, it is not unusual for a first-time gorilla mom to lose an offspring,” Dr. Robert MacLean, Audubon’s senior veterinarian, said in a news release.
