The giraffe was loose in the town of Imola for several hours after it escaped Friday, Italy's ANSA news agency reported.

Police cornered the more than 2,000-pound animal in a fenced parking lot of a grocery store and shot it with two tranquilizers.

The giraffe died from cardiac arrest shortly after being returned to the Rinaldo Orfei Circus.
