Oh, Deer, She's So Sweet

Oh, Deer, She's So Sweet

WINNIPEG - The Assiniboine Park Zoo is celebrating the arrival of a baby at the Journey to Churchill exhibit.

The Zoo introduced the little one on social media this week, a one-month-old reindeer.

Born in late June and named Whitney, the reindeer seems to be enjoying getting to know her surroundings with her mom, Lucy.

The cute caribou is named after Assiniboine Park Conservancy veterinarian Dr. Whitney Johnson, who was just completing her one-year internship when her namesake arrived.

Whitney the reindeer joins Suri, the other adult female in the habitat, along with her dad, Jorgen.
