BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A baby male Bactrian camel that was born on Wednesday at the Dakota Zoo in Bismarck has died.

Zoo officials tell KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/296BiYp ) that the calf died Wednesday night. Officials say the calf appeared to be healthy, but weakened throughout the day.

Bactrian camels have two humps and are critically endangered in the wild. There are fewer than 1,000 surviving wild camels.

The zoo in a statement says the calf died of “severe congestion of the lungs.”
