The vandals broke in overnight on Saturday to Sunday at the zoo in Lodz where they destroyed benches, signs and sculptures and hurled pieces of the debris at the animals.
One of the giraffes died within hours and the second was found dead on Monday morning.
“The autopsy of the first giraffe, a three-year-old female, found a ruptured heart valve and bruising, a sign of a severe stress reaction,” the zoo’s deputy director, Wlodzimierz Stanislawski, said.
“The second, a six-year-old female, was slightly ill before the incident. The stress likely aggravated the illness and finished her off.
“Giraffes are extremely shy and stress causes a flight response in them. They react the same way to every unusual noise,” Mr Stanislawski said.
The zoo is not equipped with surveillance cameras and night security guards did not notice anything unusual.
