Two giraffes killed by lightning strike in deadly storm

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. –Two giraffes were killed by lightning strikes last month at the Lion Country Safari.

Lily, 10, and Jioni, 1, were found when the keepers were checking on the animals.

Medical examinations showed the deaths happened instantly.

Giraffes in the park are kept in wide-open spaces that mimic their natural habitat instead of being put into enclosed pastures or pens. The park safety and crisis protocols are currently being reviewed to make sure the other giraffes stay safe.
