Cincin­nati Zoo wel­comes new go­rilla

Truro Daily News - - CLASSIFIED­S / WORLD -

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.
