Chicago zoo’s injured baby gorilla recovering
CHICAGO – A baby gorilla that was seriously injured at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo is taking steps toward recovery.
Three-month-old Nayembi suffered cuts to her face last month while in an enclosure with other gorillas. Zoo officials don’t know what caused the injury, although it appears to have been inflicted by another gorilla.
Since then, Nayembi has been spending parts of each day playing and exhibiting other normal behaviors such as crawling, exploring and putting toys in her mouth.
