New Arctic Fox at Ross Park Zoo

BINGHAMTON  -- The Ross Park Zoo is bringing you a piece of the arctic this summer.

The zoo welcomed its newest addition this weekend: August, an arctic fox.  She is the size of a pet dog or cat, and is shedding her white coat for the summer.  Zookeepers say she is a hit with visitors.

"August is very friendly and curious.  He comes right up to the wire to greet people.  He's very interested in what's going on.  He's a bit shy and hesitant right now because this is a brand new exhibit for him, but he's settling in nicely," said Elise Newman, a keeper at the Ross Park Zoo.

You can meet August any day of the week from 10 am to 5 pm at the Ross Park Zoo.
