Hearts are breaking at the Lincoln Park Zoo where a baby gorilla, just 9 days old, has been found dead in her mother’s arms.
RadarOnline.com brought you the first video of the baby girl Western lowland gorilla on Tuesday.
She was born to a 15-year-old first-time gorilla mom named Bana. Dad was a 22-year-old silverback named Kwan.
Zoo officials discovered that the baby was dead after seeing Bana carrying her lifeless body Friday. They allowed the grieving mom to continue caressing the infant for several hours.
An autopsy found that the baby had died from head trauma, but no one saw what had happened to cause the injury.
The Zoo has since been flooded my messages of sympathy.
