Zoo Raising Baby Orangutan

An orangutan born five weeks ago today at the Kansas City Zoo was rejected by her mother and is being tended around the clock by zoo staff and volunteers.

The baby clings to a furry vest worn by the helpers and requires feeding every hour and a half. Officials hope to place her with a surrogate mother orangutan at the zoo in about five months. Until then, the zoo is not allowing access to the baby or photographs.

The zoo has had success in the past with humans tending to a rejected baby chimpanzee, which has since become completely assimilated in chimp society."
