Endangered Gazelle Baby Born at Cleveland Zoo


Francis the slender-horned gazelle gave birth to a baby four weeks ago and the public will get a chance to see mother and daughter when they rejoin the rest of the herd in the African savanna exhibit at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Aug. 1.

That brings the total number of slender-horned gazelle in the zoo to five.

The little female calf has been off exhibit since being born in late June to give her time to bond with her mother, who came to Cleveland in 2009 from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The calf's father, Ziggy, came to the zoo in 2010 from the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kan.
