Poisoning in circus elephants fed on rhododendron



Poisoning in circus elephants fed on rhododendron



Kleintier Praxis 28(1): 53-56



Rhododendron leaves were given to 10 circus elephants. About 1 h later all elephants had severe signs of poisoning, mainly colic-like with intense restlessness and copious deposits of thin faeces. After 3 h the signs had largely disappeared in 7, 2 showed diminished but still evident signs and one was still severely affected.
