Gorilla Reunion: An Extraordinary Encounter


This isn’t a typical pet blog – but I offered several recent posts on animal emotions, relating to dogs and cats. How about a gorilla? Damian Aspinall (son of conversatonist John Aspinall, founder of Howletts  – a wild animal park in the UK) is now the president of the Aspinall Foundation.
