The new raccoon dog puppy at Sewerby Hall and Gardens’ zoo finally has a name.

Visitors were asked for suggestions on what to call the new arrival, and hundreds of entries were received.

She has been named Oona, which was put forward by 13-year-old Charlotte Leanne Cox from Leeds. Charlotte’s prize is an adoption pack for Oona and her friend Bandit.
