If you've never heard of New Guinea Singing Dogs, don't feel bad, there are only about 6000 left and two of them now live in Central Minnesota.

Hemker Park and Zoo in Freeport picked up this pair from two different zoos and hope to allow them to breed and add more pups back into the world.

Our videographer, Abby, and I visited the zoo and discovered a nice little zoo right in our backyard. While doing the story on the singing dogs, we saw penguins, zebra, camel, several breeds of monkeys, lots of birds and one very randy ostrich. He took quite the liking to Abby.

Check out the really cool singing dogs and all the other animals that you can see right now at Hemker Park and Zoo.
