Samantha's devastating loss 30 April 2021 TwitterShare on Tumblr Some heartbreaking news from Rockhampton Zoo. Chimpanzee Samantha delivered a stillborn boy yesterday afternoon. Zoo staff and vets worked closely with a gynaecologist and made the "difficult decision" to step in and perform a caesarean to help deliver the baby. The baby boy was delived at 1:30pm yesterday afternoon. This is sadly her second still born in a row. Our thoughts are with Samantha, the chimp troop, our staff and our community who are devastated by this loss.
