In the video on November 10 in New South Wales, the gentle giant approaches the bird and tenderly picks it up.

Onlookers marvel at the gorilla’s delicate nature, as one witness says, “He is so gentle with it. It seems he is trying to get him to go… as if to say, ‘Fly away.’ He gave it the kiss of life… how awesome was that.”

The group of spectators discusses whether the bird might be stunned or injured. Eventually, the bird stands up and starts flapping its wings. In a very human-like manner, the gorilla softly pushes the bird forward, encouraging it to take off.

Unfortunately, after about a minute of trying to help the bird, the gorilla walks away. The fate of the bird remains unknown.

Another witness at the scene recounted the touching encounter: “While visiting the gorilla enclosure at the zoo, one of the gorillas noticed an injured bird.

It walked over to the bird and tried very gently to get the bird to fly away.” They added, “When the bird didn’t fly away, the gorilla walked away without ever harming it. It was amazing such a big animal could be so gentle.”
