Little Juwa lost his mother. Then his life got even worse.
The baby chimp was captured by soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo several months ago - while it's unclear what happened to his mother, parents are often killed when babies are captured. The military members kept him for several months, attempting to sell him off for several thousand dollars.
Fortunately, a development worker heard about the baby chimp and convinced the colonel who was in charge to turn him over to wildlife management officials. When officials turned up the next day to confiscate the chimp, they found a startling scene.
