Ohio

CLEVELAND (WJW) — The voters have spoken, and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo‘s newest orangutan has a name.

The baby boy, the zoo’s first newborn orangutan since 2014, has been dubbed Zaki, following a voting contest that involved people donating to Future for Wildlife conservation efforts when making their favored name selection.
