We’ve heard stories of dolphins or dogs being heroic, but it’s hard to imagine a lion or a gorilla or a pig ready to help a human.
It is an interesting fact that animals living in zoos are very jealous of their territories. One day at a Brookfield Zoo, a little child incidentally fell into a gorilla cage.
The cells were very high and the poor boy got serious head injuries and lost consciousness. As human aid arrived late, an incredibly cautious gorilla took responsibility for saving the child.
He carefully picked up the kid and took the boy to the entrance of the cage, where the rescuers took him. Rescuers and police confirmed that without the work of the gorilla, it would have been much harder to save the little boy.
A similar incident occurred at the Jersey City Zoo. The girl also fell into a cage there but was rescued by a large male gorilla who did not allow his fellow countrymen to approach the child.
