Cincinnati Zoo welcomes new gorilla
CINCINNATI — A new gorilla is making himself at home at the Cincinnati Zoo.
The zoo recently added a 29-year-old western lowland silverback gorilla named Mshindi from the Louisville Zoo.
He’s the rst gorilla added to the exhibit since the 2016 death of Harambe, who was killed by zoo o cials after a three-year-old boy climbed into his enclosure. Harambe’s death inspired global mourning, criticism and satire. Mshindi will be introduced to the Cincinnati Zoo’s two female gorillas, Chewie and Mara, after becoming acclimated to his new surroundings.
