Man reunited with gorilla he raised as a baby (heartwarming video)

Damian Aspinall raised Kwibi the lowland gorilla up until the age of 5, when Kwibi was let go in Gabon.

Aspinall hadn’t seen Kwibi since that time, five years before.

He went back to Gabon to see if he could find Kwibi, this is the video of their reunion.

It starts off slow, then become rather heart-wrenching. When it was time to finally leave, Kwibi wouldn’t let Aspinall go – he literally held on to him. ┬áHere are two screen shots of Aspinall trying to leave, and then the video below.
