Now this is an RIP we’re real sad to be writing. 2-year old Makonnen, a giraffe at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo died early this morning in a barn fire. Thank goodness two other giraffes were able to escape the blaze that was set off by an electrical short.
Fire crews arrived at the park at 2:15 a.m. and were able to extinguish the fire by 2:35 a.m. But poor Makonnen never made it out of his stall.
1-5-3 Makonnen. 1-5-3.
