Chilling Photos From History Explained
In 1996, Binti Jua, an 8-year-old female Western lowland gorilla, tended to a 3-year-old boy
Most stories about children who fall into an animal pin in the zoo end horribly, but when a toddler fell into a gorilla’s enclosure at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois she was kept safe safe and sound by Binti Jua, an 8-year-old female. The child suffered a gash on their face and they broke their hand after a 24 foot fall.
Binta Jua seemed to understand the drill, and while cradling the boy she walked it to her enclosure’s service door and handed it off to the zoo officials. Binta Jua is still alive today and she’s a fan favorite among the crowds at the zoo.
