Sexist Gorilla 'Evicted' From Dallas Zoo?? Zoo Posts The Truth On Facebook!

Filed under: Sad SadZooGorilla

Dallas Zoo clears the air about their

Some gorillas, like people, just don't play well with others.

That was the case for Patrick, the 23-year-old, 430-pound Western lowland gorilla at the Dallas Zoo.

He's apparently pretty sexist, nipping and sneering at the female gorillas he should normally be mating with.

He even went as far as to bite one of the ladies!!

Sadly, Patrick is a sweetheart towards people, and a real staff favorite, but he's gotta go because Dallas just isn't the place for him.

He's going to move to Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, S.C. where his behavioral issues can be better handled.

The Zoo has been upset about him leaving, but also about how the media has been "inaccurately" reporting why he's moving, so they took to Facebook to clear the air, writing:

Ahh! Cuteness overload!!

Baby Gorilla Looks Like Real Life Stuffed Animal!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooGorilla

Baby Gorilla

It's a boy!!

A beautiful, baby boy Gorilla was born at Columbus Zoo on May 23rd.

The 5-pound cutie was born to proud parents Kambera and Oliver.

Since Kambera was a first time mom and didn't have very good maternal skills, the zoo's animal care experts are raising the little guy themselves.

It sounds sad, maybe even cruel, but if that baby wasn't going to get grade-A care from his mama, we're glad the zookeepers are going to raise the baby ape.

He is being raised in a nurturing environment where he receives around-the-clock care!

That's so great!

They are making sure to raise the little cutie in close proximity to his mama Kambera, at least. They hope to be able to reunite them soon!

He's such a little cutie pie we bet his mama can't wait til he's back in her arms!
