Orang-utan Saves Baby Chick From Drowning

From Martina on Friday 24th June 2011

Visitors to Dublin Zoo got a treat last week as they experienced a rare piece of inter species kindness!!

Last week, one lucky camera man, and a small group of spectators, got to see more than they had bargained for after paying their admission to the capitals famous zoo.

An Orang-utan, faced with seeing a small chick drowning in a lake beside his enclosure, reached out, and in an emotional and tender moment, saved the day.

The moment, caught on camera and an instant hit on YouTube, shows the orang-utan firstly attempting to entice the chick onto a leaf. And when that doesn’t work, well, you will just have to watch to see what happens…

Let’s just say, get the Kleenex ready!!
