What Happened When A Gorilla Saw The Man Who Raised Him, 5 Years Later.

#action=share

After raising a Gorilla in an English zoo, Damian Aspinall ventured out to the jungle where it was released to try to catch a glimpse of him, five years later. Not expecting the Gorilla, “Kwibi”, to recognize him, he was in for a major shock when they crossed paths.

What happened next was an amazing display of affection and shows that love can transcend boundaries, whether it be size, shape, race, or even species. If it put a smile on your face, as it did to me, share this amazing reunion between father and “child”.

2. Moment when he is still in the boat, and the gorilla sees him.

 

From 1:09 to 1:16
I've seen this video many times, but this is the first time I saw
the gorilla's expression, when he sees his friend in the boat.

3. Such love and trust, on both their parts.

This could teach us (humanity) so much, if we'd only pay attention. Thank you.
