Milwaukee County Zoo announces birth of Red Panda Cub

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- International Red Panda Day is coming up in a few days and it just so happens that the Milwaukee County Zoo has a big announcement.

The Zoo has announced the birth of its first red panda cub.

The new female cub, which is unnamed at this time, was born to first-time parents Dr. Erin Curry (mother) and Dash (father).

Because the youngster is still getting acclimated to her new surroundings, animal care staff is allowing her plenty of time to become comfortable before her introduction to visitors.

 It’s the Zoo’s hope she will make her public debut in the next few weeks. 

Zookeepers report that the cub is doing very well and first-time mother, Dr. E, is doing a great job raising her first cub.

Details of her debut will be coming soon so stay with CBS 58 News for more information on this developing story.
