Man Reunites with His Gorilla Friend for the First Time in Five Years

You never know how an old friend will react when you see them after many years—especially if that old friend is a wild animal.

Kwibi, a lowland gorilla, grew up with conservationist Damian Aspinall in the Howletts Wild Animal Park in England. When Kwibi was five, he was released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa as part of a re-introduction program.

But if you think this is the end of their story, you’re wrong.

Damian was missing his old friend, so he went on a mission to find him in the wild. After a long search, he finally found Kwibi.

He knew this reunion could be dangerous, but he shows no fear as he approaches the gorilla—and it paid off.

Watch the full reunion in the video down below!
