Memphis Zoo welcomes Père David fawn

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Memphis Zoo has a new addition and the new baby’s birth is extremely significant.

April is a Père David’s deer -- a species that is extinct in the wild.

The fawn was born on April 2 to first-time mom, Piper, and dad, Freddie.

To ensure she gets all the nutrients she needs, she’s being bottle fed by zoo staff.

You can meet April in the China exhibit.
