Gorillas Capture Baby Ducklings

The moment a gorilla terrifies people by grabbing a duckling, only to groom and cuddle it.

Footage shows an ape sitting and waiting for the ducks as they swim in a nearby pool in its enclosure at a zoo in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. A few seconds later, a mother duck and her ducklings waddling out of the pool, leading the gorilla to run over, with another ape, and try to take one.

The second gorilla is successful, and manages to grab one ducking after the family jumped back into the pond. The gorilla spots another duckling which has been separated from its mother, and grabs that one too. Grasping them, he sniffs the tiny ducks and later returns to his seat, where he starts carefully grooming the two birds.
