Elsa died with her head in George's lap. He wrote of his great sadness and pain in her passing. After George buried her, George and his scouts fired 20 volleys of shots over her grave in the hopes that her mate may have heard them and paused. Elsa died from a tick born disease called Babesia. She was only 5 years old.
