SD Zoo staff hand-raising endangered antelopes

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Animal care staff and veterinarians from the San Diego Zoo are helping raise peninsular pronghorn antelopes in Baja California.
 
The animals are endangered and experts are hoping to create a so-called "insurance population" at several zoos. The animals are being hand-reared and bottle-fed to help reduce the stresses that they usually encounter in the wild.
 
Once they're big enough, this group of antelopes will be transferred to the Los Angeles Zoo and a zoo in Mexico City.
