News 9 is excited to introduce a new section on our web site, The Video Vault. 

Every Friday News 9 will dig into the Video Vault and feature an old, but interesting story we aired many years ago.

This weeks video is from 1984 and features a baby gorilla.  The Oklahoma City Zoo was happy to announce that a baby gorilla named Ox was born in their facility.  The parents were Fredrieka and Moemba.

The history on Ox is hard to find.  We do know that he lived for about 9 years but died due to complications from pneumonia.

Ox's mother, Fredrieka, was the first gorilla born in captivity at the OKC Zoo. 

Join us next Friday for another video from The Video Vault.
