SAN DIEGO, CA (CBS) -

The San Diego Zoo is taking special care of one of its giraffe calves whose mother died earlier this month.

Two-month-old Congo is bottle-fed three times a day inside the San Diego Zoo Safari Park while he’s with his herd, according to the zoo’s press release.

The calf, born on June 22, was paired with a 2-year-old giraffe named Leroy in a barn after being cared for at the park’s veterinary hospital.

The two were re-released into the safari park on Aug. 27.

Video released by the park shows senior mammal keeper Eileen Neff feeding Congo.
