COLUMBIA (WACH) -- A protective mother babirusa has helped turn WACH Foxâ??s
into an international story.

our cameras were getting a little too close to her baby
and gave cameraman Chris Wellbaum a not-so-subtle hint to back off while
talked with Andrea Mueller an animal keeper from
WACH Fox provided the video to CNN and according to their records, the story was aired by 200 affiliates around the world, including stations in Spain, Brazil, and Poland.
Every other week Wild Wednesday travels to Riverbanks Zoo to help teach our viewers about the different animals, their habitats, and how the zookeepers care for them.
