  • Description

    The scene is Copenhagen Zoo, Denmark, and there is trouble with a new born giraffe. Mother giraffe "Tove" is so ticklish that she shies nervously away and goes to the other end of the enclosure whenever her baby tries to suckle from her.

    For the time being, baby is being fed each day by one of the zoo keepers and is responding well to the treatment. The keepers are hoping, however, that mother will soon overcome her nervousness and feed her offspring in the natural way.

    The Zoo will shortly be celebrating its hundredth anniversary and is hoping for a record number of successful births among its animal population this year. A few months ago one of the hippopotamuses set up a new zoo record by giving birth to its sixteenth baby.
