This baby needs his/her mother. Hopefully, this baby will be brought up to live with other Gorillas in the future.

This is the direct result of African poverty, human greed and human ignorance. Last Saturday I had a one-hour argument with a young man who INSISTED he has the right to buy a monkey as a pet because HE wants one! These little apes are being penalized for the very same reasons....human ignorance, poverty and greed.
