Kinard Elementary School in South Carolina has started a new project that’s enriching the lives of kids and animals in the area. For two days first grade teacher Lauren Demarest took all the first graders to the York County Animal Shelter.

This Woman Was Reunited With The Gorillas She Was Raised With And It’s Beautiful

A young woman, Tansy Aspinall, grew up alongside gorillas during her childhood because her parents ran The Aspinall Foundation, a non-profit organization that rehabilitates gorillas that were in captivity at a park in England. One of her closest gorilla friends, who she last saw at the age of 11, was released back into the wild and Aspinall went to see if she could reunite with him.

Animals are such intelligent beings, often having memories and senses that surpass those of humans. Many animals, such as elephants, crows, and sea lions, have superb long-term memories that allow them to remember loved ones, grieve, and even seek revenge.

Gorillas are no different, which is something Aspinall learned when she went to visit a gorilla she had grown up with and last seen 12 years prior.

Aspinall told Daily Mail in an interview,

“My sister Clary and I often played with Djalta and Bimms on the lawn and sometimes we went into the cages with other gorillas. I loved being around them all, but those two guys were really very special to us, like our relatives.”

Though Bimms’ and Tansy’s childhood relationship was strong, as she said that they “would come up and hug you, and we’d run and roll around and chase them,” Apinall was understandably apprehensive about meeting Bimms again. She wasn’t sure if he would even recognize her or if he had perhaps even become dangerous like all wild animals can be when defending themselves.

Suffering from seizures and riddled with arthritis in her hips, loyal, loving Hannah was also enduring side-effects from the medications she was on to control her seizures. While watching Hannah struggle to walk and climb stairs, owner Kyle Amick knew a difficult decision was on the horizon.“I finally decided that keeping her on the meds was selfish, but keeping her off of them was just as cruel,” Amick stated.

Devastated to see her best friend living in pain, stricken by seizures, with medication that no longer worked, Amick decided to give Hannah one last day of love and pampering. She photographed each step of this beautiful yet heartbreaking final day with Hannah.
