Brights Zoo in Limestone welcomes new giraffe

LIMESTONE, TN (WJHL)- Brights Zoo in Limestone recently welcomed a new giraffe.

In an update on Facebook this weekend, they said Alf now weighs more than 161 pounds.

Zoo officials said it will be a while before Alf goes on display with the other giraffes, but that he is doing well and regularly taking his bottles.
