A gorilla now known as Parry won't have to be alone anymore.
Parry's past is a heart-wrenching story of displacement and alienation. The gorilla, who is now around 5 years old, was stolen from the forest as a baby after his mother was killed, and kept as a pet. But when he got too big to keep, his owners simply abandoned him.
When villagers in Cameroon found him recently, he was all alone, hungrily eating mangoes from a tree. And everything changed for him in that moment.
