“When I walked into the zoo that day, I never could’ve imagined that we’d have this experience,” she said. “It was so beautiful and we walked out over the moon. And we had so many people stop us and tell us that was the most beautiful thing we’ve ever watched. And it was so touching, it really was. You could feel the emotions were just in the air.”
The experience must have been amazing — and likely drove home just how strong the bond is between us and some of our closest animal relatives.
Austin admitted that Canyon slept through most of the interaction but thankfully, her husband Michael caught the entire interaction on camera and uploaded the video on YouTube over the weekend.
One day, when Canyon is older, he can watch the video of a gorilla adoringly doting over him, as well as hearing the surrounding crowd audibly have their hearts melted every time Kiki put her hand up to the glass.
