Zoo staff fosters meerkat babies

A young meerkat — one of two cubs rejected by their mother at birth — is bottlefed by a zoo keeper on June 4 at the Aachen Zoo in western Germany. The siblings, named Fips and Lucky, are now joining the ranks of adorable rescued zoo babies thanks to some compassionate zoo keepers.
