Although the cause of death was a cardiac arrest, there was also serious organ failure and infection.  Multiple bullet fragments were found during an autopsy including near the eyes and throughout the body.  These injuries and resultant infections were determined to have led to the organ failure and death.

Officials and community members arranged for a ceremonial burial of the elephant’s body with due reverence and respect.  Investigations are ongoing about the circumstances and responsibility for the shooting.
