Fantastic!! This behavior is observed in the movie "Gorillas in the Mist" - based on the life's work of Dian Fossey. Dian Fossey was killed trying to protect them. Gorillas are truly awesome animals with high intellect and emotion.

The bond between Humans and Animals can be just as strong as the connection between Humans. We must learn to respect our mutual companions on this planet, or we will lose countless potential friends.
