(A is for Ape)
I just heard a story of a little 4 year old boy who fell into a Gorilla pen in London some years back. A female went over and felt the boy over to ensure he was not badly hurt, then picked him up and kept him away from the large male Gorilla until she could hand the little boy over to zoo officials. It just seemed like a good story to share.
