The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will receive an injured baby gorilla and pair her with a surrogate mother. Misha, a female born at the Louisville Zoo on Feb. 6, was involved in a "skirmish" that resulted in her losing part of her left leg and breaking a bone near her left hip, the Columbus Zoo said in a news release.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will receive an injured baby gorilla and pair her with a surrogate mother. Misha, a female born at the Louisville Zoo on Feb. 6, was involved in a "skirmish" that resulted in her losing part of her left leg and breaking a bone near her left hip, the Columbus Zoo said in a news release.

Patty Peters, director of community relations, said the new gorilla was scheduled to arrive at the Columbus Zoo this week.

The surrogacy program includes around-the-clock care by trainers until the baby can be introduced to her surrogate mother. The program has been used with eight Columbus Zoo baby gorillas and five from other zoos.
