Casey Anthony Could Learn About Maternal Love From A Baboon

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Clinging to the under-belly of a baboon, Gakii, a 3-month-old orphaned bush baby has plumped for an unlikely surrogate-mother.

In the grounds of the Nairobi Animal Orphanage, the duo cavort around in each others` arms, drink milk out of the same bowl and poke mischievously at a Reuters television camera.

`This is not normal. It has not happened here and I guess it has not happened anywhere else,` said Edward Kariuki, a warden at the animal home in the Kenyan capital."


Here in America we are glued to the TV watching the trial of ghost-face Casey Anthony who is accused of killing her own daughter. This deathly pale monster partied her brains out in the days after she murdered her daughter.

But in Nairobi we see true maternal love, between a baboon and a three-month-old bush baby. This unlikely duo is inseparable, and they are the stars of the Nairobi Animal Orphanage.

Casey Anthony should be sentenced to a life term cleaning the dwelling places of the baboons and other animals at the Nairobi Animal Orphanage. Better yet Casey should be forced to clean the cage of the lion -- with the lion still in his cage.
