For the first time in 23 years is a seal been born in Copenhagen Zoo.
It happened on Friday last week, where a zoo-guest discovered that there was a new in the basin, writes TV2 Lorry.
- the Guest made us aware of it, and though the keepers was well aware that the birth was imminent, then perform the seals – like all other animals in the zoo – the birth itself, so there is no monitoring in the plant and the actual birth was, therefore, taken place unnoticed, says the chief communications officer, Jacob Munkholm Hoeck to the media.
In a video on the garden's Facebook page tells the zoo keeper Ellen Wiborg, that the birth was 'a bit dramatic'.
on Friday gave birth to our oldest hunsæl a young people here in the plant. She gave birth to him, so he bloppede in the water with the same. He went under the bridge and could not figure out, she says.
- We could fortunately, quickly grab his bagluffer and pull him out gently, she continues and adds that they at the same time was checked-the navel of the baby and could see that it was fine, 'and that it was actually a little he'.
