ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Good news Wednesday from Seneca Park Zoo.
Monroe County Executive Adam Bello says the zoo’s snow leopard cub continues to improve from a respiratory illness.
Bello says the cub is weighing 2 pounds, getting stronger, and is becoming more steady on its feet.
The cub was born last month in the second litter from Timila, Seneca Park Zoo’s 4-year-old female snow leopard, and Kaba, the zoo’s 10-year-old male snow leopard.
Zoo officials said on the day it was born the animal was hypothermic and dehydrated and “the difficult decision to hand raise him was made.”
