For the past month, Ringer has been under 24 hour observation by her keepers and caretakers. She gave birth a little after 8 p.m. last night (May 20, 2017). We were all hoping for the best outcome for her and her calf, and had all the support we could provide in place. The team responded immediately when the calf began to show signs of distress, a few minutes after birth, but unfortunately were unable to resuscitate the calf.
