(WHAS11)  A young gorilla born at the Louisville Zoo and moved to Columbus, OH after having part of her leg amputated has died.  One year-old Misha died at the Columbus Zoo Thursday morning.
 

Zoo officials said she had been treated for flu-like symptoms since March 3 and was in intensive care for the past week.
 

During emergency surgery veterinarians discovered a perforated bowel and repaired it, but Misha died several hours later due to the severity of the condition.
