CAPE MAY COUNTY, N.J. -

The Cape May County Zoo has a new little resident!

This baby bison was born one week ago Thursday.

Mom, "Henrietta", is a 4-year old cow, while the sire, "Hank" is a 4-year old bull. Both came from Six Flags Great Adventure in 2010.

This is the first bison calf to be born at the zoo.

You can see the baby bison and its mom in the North American Prairie exhibit.

"Bison are one of the most important animals in the History of the United States," a zoo news release stated. "Once numbering in the tens of millions, American Bison were almost driven to extinction by American pioneers in the late 1800's. Conservation efforts by zoos have brought the Bison population back from the brink of extinction."

The Zoo is open, weather-permitting, every day of the year but Christmas Day from 10 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. For additional information, call 465-5271 or visit capemaycountygov.net.
