Yesterday the Prospect Park Zoo announced that its cow Tetley had just welcomed an adorable new calf to its menagerie. And if you thought that was cute, well, you haven't seen the letters that kids have written to the baby.

Well, maybe not exactly to the newest baby. Laura Silver recently stopped by the petting zoo and snapped some pictures of the "kids letters to the animals" that are posted there (including one to new mama Tetley—"I am so happy you are one of the cows that were born."). Kids write the darndest letters to illiterate animals!
