Baby Giraffe Being Hand-Reared by Zookeepers Enjoys Morning Milk

A giraffe calf being hand-reared by keepers at Perth Zoo can be seen enjoying its morning milk in footage posted on October 20.

First-time mother Elie struggled to feed the male calf, the zoo said, and so staff stepped in.

The zoo said that “without human support and supplementary feeding this little giraffe would not survive,” but that he was “doing very well and is getting stronger every single day.” Credit: Perth Zoo via Storyful
