I found this video clip just amazing, yet not surprising when you realize a bond can be very strong indeed between two living creatures.


  1. Wow, that was incredible. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Now I`am sniveling and having to blow my nose !-that was incredible-very touching.

  3. Beautiful! But I feel bad for the gorilla because Damian had to leave again.

  4. thanks for that:-lovely
    have you seen the footage of the gorilla in jersey zoo( the english island and not the US city)?
    google in jersey zoo, gorilla, little boy
    : a little boy fell into the gorilla pit and sustained a head injury and the male gorila protected him before help arrived!!

  5. So very touching. I loved how he wouldn't let him go!

  6. Absolutley fantastic.
    My brother was head Elephant keeper for John Aspinall the founder of Howletts and Port Lympne. They have a marvelous ethos for returning animals to the wild.

  7. My gosh! That was wonderful!

  8. Amazing. But must be confusing for the gorilla and a bit sad.

  9. Aw, you're going to make me cry. And that's not really my thing. Sweet story. m.

  10. I saw this video earlier. It is very touching. Anyone who says animals don't remember are, well, close minded.
    Oh, I just read the comment you left on my sisters blog. You are so funny!!! Thanks for the morning smile.
    Another hug! :)

  11. So beautiful, I just know in my heart of hearts. They have souls! Thanks for sharing, Mal

  12. most moving and i also had to blow my nose... (sheepishly he admits...). while i don't like human interference, if it meant saving a life at some point, fine!! returning them to the wild is best, as long as they can adjust. this was...a tremendous moment. i envy (which is rare for me) tha man who experienced this first hand. there is indeed a connection between primates, which we are, despite what some people might think.
    thanx Jim!! well worth sharing.
    gotta go!! gotta go blow my nose again...
    sinuses problems, you know...

  13. That's pretty sweet.There is so much good in the world.

  14. I'm torn...this is so beautiful but then I found it quite sad...nevertheless amazing!

  15. ...SO very beautiful touching....I love indeed this wonderful documentation of how magic can be a real FRIENDSHIP, Jim !

    Look at Damian's happy face at the end of the short clip........

    Wonderful people which do such incredible and unbelievable work with animals!

    Animal Planet; a great program where I watch together with my boys beautiful documentaries about extraordinary stories of humans and animals!!!

    Living on top of a hill in a protectet natural park I made some incredible experiences with wild animals like resciuing a hurt little aigle; after he was well he lived with us for more than two years, completely free..., what wonderful memories!

    Have a gret sunny day, Jim!!
