Zoo keepers hand rearing baby gorilla


An infant western lowland gorilla is being given round-the-clock care by keepers after his mother found it difficult to care for him. The two-month-old male gorilla has not been feeding well and is not getting enough milk from his mother Kala. So keepers at Bristol Zoo decided to bottle-feed him. A small team of experienced keepers is now caring for him day and night for the next four months, after which it is hoped he will be ready to return to the rest of the group.
