Spread the word

Gorillas are quite similar to human beings. Compared to other animals, they are very intelligent. I’m sure that every one of you has seen many movies about them. Most of these movies showcase their high level of intelligence. 

This story is about how a gorilla approached an injured bird that fell into his enclosure. He made sure to tend to the injured bird with care and love. The incident occurred in a gorilla enclosure at a zoo in New South Wales, Australia. 

One of the visitors who witnessed this incident managed to capture it on camera. The video of the gorilla checking on the wounded bird has been circling on the internet ever since. The visitor managed to catch a very heartwarming moment. 

First, the gorilla walks towards the bird and has a close look at the bird. From the way he looks at the injured bird, we notice how careful he is with it. He then tenderly touches the bird and tries to get it to move. Although the wounded bird flutters its wings, it doesn’t fly away. 

While he was visiting the gorilla enclosure at the zoo, the videographer said one of the gorillas noticed an injured bird. The gorilla walked over to the bird and very gently tried to get the bird to fly. When the bird didn’t fly, the gorilla walked away without harming it. He was amazed that such a huge animal could be that gentle.
