When something is loaned, it is meant to be returned. Return the Ndume with a thank you, instead of whatever The Gorilla Foundation is up to now. Embarrassing.

CINCINNATI ZOO HAS HAD TOO MANY PROBLEMS, PLUS THEY KILL GORILLAS WHEN THEY DON'T
UNDERSTAND GORILLA BEHAVIOUR, AS WITH HARMANDE, WHO GENTLY TOOK HOLD OF THE CHILD
WHO FELL IN AND WAITED AT A DOOR FOR KEEPER TO COME, BUT NO KEEP CAME, THEN HE
CAREFULLY DRAGGED THE CHILD TO A SECOND DOOR AND WAITED BUT NO KEEPER CAME. THEY
THOUGHT IT WAS BEST TO KILL HIM. NO I DON'T BELIEVE NDUME SHOULD GO TO THIS
CINCINNATI ZOO AT ALL.

Wherever the gorilla is happiest is where he should be, and that is probably with his most recent companions, human and/or animal. Transporting these intelligent, sensitive animals is always traumatic and should be minimized.

Can't we just move Ndume to the White House. He's got more intelligence and better manners than the chimp we have there now.
