One more member has been added to the Roosevelt Park Zoo family after two bison recently gave birth to a calf.
The American bison female calf was born on October 14th to Zoo bison Ole() and Lena, which were both donated to the zoo.
So far the zoo has not determined a name for the new calf.
Roosevelt Park Zoo Veterinarian, Ann Olson, says the birth of the bison calf is a nice addition to the zoo.
(Ann Olson, Roosevelt Park Zoo Veterinarian)"It's always fun to have a baby. It's nice for the public and it's also nice for the zoo keepers and the staff. It adds a level of excitement. It's always nice to see new births and new life around the zoo. It just kind of adds a little excitement to our day."
You can see the new addition tomorrow at Boo at the Zoo between 1 and 4 in the afternoon.
