Look at him go! Our newest addition to the @SenecaParkZoo is already running around and in good spirits even while wearing a leg splint. Our veterinarian team will continue to watch the Masai giraffe calf closely 24/7 to ensure he is nice and healthy. pic.twitter.com/bfJciQqaux— Adam J. Bello (@CountyExecBello) July 14, 2022
