Breaks my heart that this gorilla had to listen to humans screaming in terror while she only had one thing on her mind - to comfort this injured boy. Animals are not monsters, they are not meant to be tourist attractions. They are living, breathing beings with feelings and emotions. Faith in ANIMALS restored.
Most people have heard of Koko, the gorilla who could speak. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. When Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off.
