Three Kudus Born At North Carolina Zoo


ASHEBORO, N.C., (UPI) — Officials at the North Carolina zoo said they have welcomed a trio of newborn kudus, a species of African antelope.

Tom Gillespie, a spokesman for the zoo, said two of the baby kudus, which were born in the past week, are on display while the third is receiving medical treatment before joining its siblings at the African Plains exhibit, the Raleigh News & Observer reported Thursday.

Gillespie said another kudu, a baby giraffe and two fringe-eared oryx calves have also been born at the zoo in the past two months.
