Montgomery Zoo officials say they're trying to determine what led to the death of a baby Indian rhinoceros. The animal was found dead at the zoo on Friday.
Ethan was the first of his species to be born in the U.S. as result of artificial insemination. The Montgomery Zoo worked with the Cincinnati Zoo to make the birth possible.
Montgomery Zoo spokeswoman Sarah McKemey tells The Montgomery Advertiser that nothing obvious was wrong with the rhinoceros before his death. She said the death was "sudden and unexpected."
WAKA-TV reports that a necropsy is planned.
