HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

As people in the Hub City prepared to eat their Christmas feasts and open gifts, the Hattiesburg Zoo welcomed new life into the world.

The zoo reopens from the holiday on Tuesday, and its inviting everyone out to meet the baby duiker. The zoo says it will hold a naming contest for its newest addition soon.
