Baikal seal pup: Yaroslavl Zoo star-to-be

Zookeepers say a Baikal seal pup named Zaika who has lived in the Yaroslavl Zoo since early May has become a visitors’ favorite.
Local fishermen found the baby seal in a small lagoon in the Irkutsk region. They handed her over to the amateur biologist Yury Karpov, who reared the pup and named her Zaika. Later, Karpov placed the baby seal in a zoo.
