Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English.
Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.
When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.
It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.

I just wanna let you know that you’re the first person to do any of this and it means volumes to the people who do wear the Hijab, and people like me who knows my mother wears a Hijab and there’s people who are actually gonna defend her when something like this happens.
[Girl:] I think it’s completely ridiculous that no one stopped.
Are you even Muslim?
But you know what a Hijab is and you choose to defend her for it.
And you are the reason we’re gonna start changing as a people and you’re the reason like, you’re the hope, you’re the spark of hope - you’re the Katniss in this. Seriously she’s Katniss Everdeen everybody! Power to the people!
