      Point Defiance Zoo welcomes new clouded leopard cub

      TACOMA, Wash. -- Staff at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium welcomed a new resident Wednesday morning when an endangered clouded leopard gave birth to a healthy cub.

      Zoo staff will provide around-the-clock bottle feedings and care for the half-pound cub.

      "We are delighted with the birth of this cub," zoo general curator Karen Goodrowe Beck said in a news release. "Clouded leopards are very endangered and every one is a precious addition to the population."

      The cub is the third born to Chai Li and her mate, Nah Fun, according to zoo officials.

      The cub doesn't have a name yet and it's unclear when zoo visitors will be able to see him in person.
