FRONT ROYAL, Va. -- A rare, 6-month-old horse has died at the National Zoo's Conservation and Research Center in Front Royal after fracturing its neck.
It's not clear how the Przewalski horse was injured, zoo officials said.
The animal was found unconscious Friday shortly after it walked onto a trailer to be taken to a new pasture, officials said. The horse was rushed to a veterinary hospital and died a short time later. Another six-month-old horse that was being transported on the trailer wasn't injured.
