A Belated Happy Birthday To Aggie -
New York City's Favorite Cow!
Aggie, a Dexter cow at the Prospect Park Zoo’s petting area, turned 12 on Thursday, May 19. The friendly, black cow has been charming Zoo visitors since 1993 and has become an unofficial mascot of the Zoo’s Domestic Area.
Over the years, hundreds of young New Yorkers have written letters to Aggie – thanking her for their fun visit to the Zoo. A sampling of current letters hangs on a display board inside the Barn Area, and pencils and paper are provided for zoo-goers to pen their own “Dear Aggie” letters.
So be sure to stop by the Zoo and visit Aggie.
