Zoo Atlanta Delivers Baby Sumatran Orangutan Via C-Section
- East Atlanta Patch

Blaze, a 16-year-old Sumatran orangutan, gave birth to a male on Jan. 10 at Zoo Atlanta. He was delivered via Caesarean section with the consultation of an extensive pre-appointed medical team that comprised human obstetricians, neonatologists and veterinary anesthesiologists.

Blaze’s Caesarean section is one of only three performed on Sumatran orangutans in recent years. She is a small-bodied female, and her reproductive history includes a previous birth, but the offspring did not survive the birth process, possibly due to causes related to Blaze’s small size.

A "longtime friend" snatched $40 from a woman's bra Wednesday at a local motel in what authorities call an alleged strong-arm robbery.

The Guest House resident, 26, told Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputies she was "shocked" when her friend stole her money after hanging out in her room for about 10 minutes, according to the incident report, attached.

She said two "longtime friends" stopped by about 9:30 p.m. and "out of nowhere," one of the men grabbed her from behind and reached into her bra as the second man stood by.
