    Default Denver Zoo Rescues Ailing Baby Orangutan

    On Jun 19th, Denver Zoo welcomed a new baby Sumatran Orangutan to mother Hesty. Eleven days after the birth, zoo staff noticed the infant looked weak. After sedating Hesty so they could examine the infant, they realized the baby was severely dehydrated and had not been nursing properly. Despite veterinarians best efforts to encourage proper nursing, they had to intervene again when the baby appeared unresponsive July 1st. Due to the exceptional care provided by Denver Zoo staff, the baby is now healthy and has been reunited with mother Hesty. Throughout the process, keepers and vets cared for the baby in view of mother Hesty, who watched attentively throughout the process.

    Poor little thing. Glad the little guy (or girl) is getting better. They are just so precious and sweet.
