In 2017 A Baby Gorilla Was Messing Around – And His Dad Kicked Him As A Form Of Discipline

Zoos play an important role in our society, giving us a glimpse into the lives of the animals they are home to. In November 2017 visitors to Twycross Zoo in the U.K. got a fascinating look into the shenanigans of a baby gorilla named Shufai. The little primate was acting up in his enclosure, but his dad Oumbi was not amused – and was quick to reprimand him.

Located in Leicestershire, England, Twycross Zoo was opened back in 1963 by Natalie Evans and Molly Badham. The pair had owned a pet shop in nearby Staffordshire, but their growing collection of animals meant they needed to move to a bigger site. Since then, the zoo has proved to be a very popular attraction and showcases a variety of wildlife.
