Chimps seeing the sun for the first time.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/04/lab-chimps-see...
Some chimps were rescued from a lab in New Mexico and were relocated to Germany. These chimps are seeing the sun for the first time. Scroll a bit. I love the reaction, and I started bawling my head off.
If this doesn't touch your heart, you don't have one. These animals are so like us. I just don't understand how anyone could mistreat them and sleep at night.
The news video is in German, and I have no idea what they are saying, just FYI.

Animal abuse is the lowest form of misanthropy.

5. Oh, that is wonderful... poignant and very telling...
Heart-breaking to think of others like them--who never got that chance. Not to mention the capture of baby chimps and wresting them away from their mothers.

But, at least for these--a very happy ending. :loveya:

7. Didn't you love the hug as they were coming out?!
"Look, buddy! I told you someday we'd get out of those cages!" Oh, that is when the tears started.
