Hope Arrives In NYC

Hope Arrives In NYC


IRENE Hope, that is!!


Hours before Hurricane Irene hit NYC on Saturday, zookeepers at the Central Park Zoo discovered the zoo population had increased by one.

Namely, an eight-pound baby lamb, who was promptly named Irene Hope.

Baby lambs are rarely born this time of year, zookeepers were unaware that Irene’s mother, a ewe named Truffle was even expecting (perhaps a new TLC pet reality series in the making??)

ANYWAY-she is beautiful and wonderful, and just goes to show yet another way Mother Nature can surprise us.  WELCOME, Irene Hope!!
