Should a gorilla be parenting that child?September 18, 2012 @ 9:53 am (Updated: 9:57 am - 9/18/12 )
It's cute, there's no doubt about that. A gorilla and an 18-month old girl cuddling, playing, whiling the day away. It looks like a dream afternoon, a kid's fantasy. Like swimming with a dolphin.
The video is making the rounds now but it's actually 22-years-old, taped by a wildlife foundation in England. The girl's dad is said to be releasing it now to raise money for conservation - by showing how gentle these great apes are.
The dad says if you grow up around these gorillas, it's like you're one of their family. But even if Kong's heart is in the right place, would you let your little Fay Wray play with him?
