"A young gorilla at Britain`s Twycross Zoo is becoming a viral star thanks to a video of him ballet dancing around his enclosure.
The video, posted to YouTube by Helen Fairhead, shows a 3-year-old silverback gorilla named Lope twirling around his indoor enclosure in a style the filmer compared to ballet dancing."
A gorilla brings to mind the brute strength of a predator, not the agile grace of a ballet dancer. But this gorilla named Lope exhibits more grace and style than most of the stars featured on Dancing With the Stars.
What in God`s name is this lithe and intelligent creature doing locked up in a zoo? It is inhumane to lock any animal in a zoo, the only zoos I believe in are natural preserves where the animals roam free and humans are caged in automobiles.
You`d think a gorilla would twerk like a Miley Cyrus-type beast, but this gorilla prefers the artistic moves of a ballerina.
Watch this video, and you will be tempted to break into a zoo at night, and free all the animals.
