At Dublin Zoo: Jorong the Orangutan and the Moorhen Chick

by Diane Duane

From the Irish Times:

“The YouTube clip shows a male Bornean orang-utan, named Jorong, careening over rocks at the edge of his enclosure where an injured moorhen chick flaps about in a pond.

The ape spends a number of minutes patiently coaxing the duckling ashore with a leaf before gently lifting it onto grass behind the rocks.”

All Pratchett fans, note that while the article does call him an ape, at least they don’t refer to him as a monkey…
