Original text on this topic:
A black rhinoceros at the National Zoo had sired offspring in 1967, 1970, and 1978. Later, a female rhinoceros died of tuberculosis. Results of subsequent intradermal tuberculin testing included a positive response in this male. It was treated with isoniazid for 6 months, after which time it was decided to euthanize it because of declining health and risk of spreading the disease to the rest of the herd.
