Kipenzi, a 6-year-old Masai giraffe at the Seneca Park Zoo, has been diagnosed with cancer, the zoo announced Thursday.  Kipenzi underwent a high-risk procedure Aug. 15, with a team of veterinarians performing a biopsy and radiograph on a growth on her jaw.  The biopsy results revealed the growth is a squamous cell carcinoma and is invasive through the jaw bone.  Due to its location they cannot remove it with surgery.  The zoo said Kipenzi’s medical team will continue to monitor her health closely, especially her ability to eat and maintain a healthy weight.  If the growth grows large enough that she can’t eat, zoo staff say they may have to euthanize her.
