Touched By A Mountain Gorilla

I have mixed feelings about this video of a man being touched by a Wild Mountain Gorilla. I think it is very exciting and interesting to see the Gorilla’s interact this way. But on the other hand, I’m somewhat saddened that they trust the humans to get this close and comfortable with them. Yes, I realize the gorilla wasn’t being threatened and that they were in complete control as they could have seriously hurt or killed this guy if they felt threatened. I just hope the Gorillas are smart enough to tell the difference between humans that care about them and those that don’t.
