A giraffe died after hitting its head on the underside of a bridge while being transported on a highway near Pretoria, the capital, Eyewitness News reported.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is investigating the incident, the Johannesburg-based broadcaster said on its website. One of the giraffes knocked its head as the truck drove under a bridge, EWN said, citing people it didn’t identify.

The animals were stranded when the vehicle broke down on the highway, it said.
