Elite Readers previously reported about a conservationist who raised a zoo-bred gorilla as if it were his own. Kwibi was just five years old when Damian Aspinall and his team released him into the wild in 2005. Five years later, Damian decided to track him down.

One would expect that the gorilla would not recognize Damian after all those years and even the conservationist himself didn’t think it was possible. However, it turned out to be one heartwarming reunion.

The story continues with Damian and his daughter Tansy. The family owned a charity, The Aspinall Foundation, which rehabilitates gorillas who were raised in captivity. Their goal is to release gorillas to where they belong, their native habitat in West Africa.

The Aspinall Foundation has been achieving their goal of reintroducing captive gorillas into the wild for 15 years.

Tansy is one who’s fond of helping around with the activities in the charity. The foundation released two gorillas 12 years back – Bimms and Djalta to reintroduce them to their natural habitat. These gorillas were born in an animal park in Kent, England.

In 2014, the father and daughter headed to Gabon where Bimms and Djalta were releaed to check out how they are doing. It’s yet another heartwarming reunion this time and it’s amazing how the gorillas were able to recognize the voice of the person who once raised them.

What’s more adorable is how Bimms and Djalta reacted when they saw Tansy, who was just a little girl at the time of their first meeting. Now that she’s all grown up, watch how the gorillas react to her presence.

Watch another heartwarming reunion of gorillas and humans in the video below.

This was exemplified by this CCTV video caught in a neighborhood in Louisiana wherein a little boy was seen running inside a garage and giving the dog a quick bear hug before going back out to the street.

The owner of the house and the dog, Hollie Breaux Mallet, posted the video on Facebook not to embarass or scold the young boy, but to encourage him to stay longer and play with her dog, Duchess.

Caught on film, this scary moment shows us a zoo lion in Japan attempting to pounce a two-yer-old boy. Well fortunately, an enclosure glass wall was there to protect the child from certain harm.

As you can see on the video, the animal seemed to be sitting calmly when the toddler was looking at him. The moment the youngster turned his back, however, the big cat rose up and ran violently towards him. Without that glass, we do not doubt the poor boy would have been lion snack.

In Japan, this 2-year-old boy almost got pounced by the huge lion behind him.

Think your cat just stays indoors while you’re sleeping at night? Well think again, my feline-loving friends!
