Syracuse, N.Y. - The Royals are not the only ones giving birth this week!!!
County Executive Ryan McMahon, announced the birth of a baby American bison at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
The bison was born while on exhibit as many zoo visitors watched in awe. The calf is the second bison baby to be born at the zoo to Mother Sue and Father Harley. The first was named Abigail, this calf will be named Madison. Bisons came close to extinction by 1900, when only about 1,000 remained.
As of today zoos have restored the population to about 500,000 in zoos, preserves and protected parklands. In 2016, the American bison was named the US National Mammal.
