How can anyone watch this video (tweeted by Matthew Cobb) and still maintain that animals don’t have emotions? It’s touching and sad, in the way that’s sad when any human who has bonded with a young animal must release it back to the wild:
And here’s the YouTube description, which includes a link if you want to adopt a baby gorilla:
In the African jungle, conservationist Damian Aspinall searches for Kwibi, a lowland gorilla he hasn’t seen for 5 years. Kwibi grew up with Damian at his Howletts Wild Animal Park in England. When he was five, he was released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa as part of conservation programme to re-introduce gorillas back into the wild. Now Kwibi’s 10 years old, much bigger and stronger. Will Damian find him? Will Kwibi attack him?
