A giraffe that escaped a circus in central Italy died after being tranquilized for recapture, officials said.
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.
