Daily Cute: Gorilla’s Touching Reunion With Old Friend

Editor’s note: This post is a Care2 favorite, back by popular demand! It was originally posted on April 29, 2013. Enjoy!

Kwibi the lowland gorilla used to live in a wild animal park in the UK. Then, he was released into the wild in West Africa. 5 years later, his human friend from the park comes to visit. This is an amazing example of how animals can be successfully reintroduced into the wild!

Watch the magic:

The comments posted by Jan N and Amitav say it all. No one doubts the intelligence of gorillas or how touching the video but it's a bit irresponsible of Care 2 to post the video without the updated back story and outcome.

We still have so much to learn from animals. The only problem is that we can not communicate sufficiently. If only we could understand them better. But then, do you also think the humans will be come more abusive towards them? Will the brutality of humanity towards animals not increase? We cannot even love each other, never mind another species....

I had already seen it before. Loved to see it again. Never tired of if as it is indeed moving. Don't need to say it but I can't resist. The guy is too handsome, isn't he?
