A touring petting zoo in Winslow had quite the surprise on Easter morning when a mother reindeer gave birth, quite unexpectedly to the staff.

The baby reindeer is the first to be born in Maine in 20 years. Pony X-Press co-owner Ed Papsis says the reindeer is a healthy dark brown female calf who's getting a lot of attention.

The reindeer mother, named Cocoa, is doing quite well and is a great mom. The baby reindeer has yet to be named.
