UK's first musk ox in 17 years born

1 post in this topic

The first musk ox to be born in the UK in 17 years has taken her first steps at her enclosure in the Kincraig Highland Wildlife Park.

Named Belle by park staff, the calf is the first since 1996.

Musk ox, which were once native to Scotland, are difficult to breed in captivity and the young have weak immune systems, the park said.

If Belle survives to adulthood, staff said she would, like other musk ox, be "strong and fairly belligerent".
