MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A zoo in Minot has announced the birth a serow (SEHR’-oh) calf that’s native to Japan.

KXMC-TV (https://bit.ly/1M6zGLs ) reports the Japanese serow calf was born May 26 at Roosevelt Park Zoo. It’s the second calf born to the parents in the past two years.

The serow, which are considered goat antelope, are classified as “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

A physical hasn’t been done on the calf, but zookeepers believe he’s male. Zookeeper Allison Suda says the calf is only about a foot tall, but she says a serow can weigh between 100 and 200 pounds and are as tall as 3 feet when fully grown.
