Baby Giraffe gets special shoes

Local News

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (WTAJ) — The newest baby giraffe at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington has gotten a pair of therapeutic shoes.

The giraffe was born last Thursday to his mom Olivia.

He hasn’t been named yet, but soon after being born, zoo workers realized the little guy’s legs weren’t aligned properly.

Now, he has some casts to help him out.

He’s been wearing them for almost a week now and is expected to undergo a more in-depth treatment for his legs for a few months.

While the baby and mom work on bonding the zoo says the giraffes won’t be open to visitors.
