This Gorilla Reunion Will Make You Weep

If you watch only one gorilla reunion video today, make it this one. Here, conservationist Damian Aspinall is reunited with a lowland gorilla named Kwibi that he spent five years raising before the animal was released into the wild. Working with the Aspinall Foundation, which helps reintroduce captive gorillas from Howletts Wild Animal Park in England to a million acre reserve in Gabon, West Africa, Aspinall returned to West Africa, where Kwibi had been released, five years later, to see the gorilla he had helped raise. Nobody knew what would happen. The ape had attacked people. Their reunion is amazing to witness. Also, I would like to marry Aspinall. Oh, dang, he’s dating Elle McPherson. Sucks for me. [BuzzFeed]
