Dallas Zoo gorilla, Hope, dies at 23

A gorilla at the Dallas Zoo died suddenly Sunday night.

Hope was a 23-year-old western lowland gorilla. She and others had been having gastrointestinal issues, lately. Testing is underway to determine why Hope died.

In 2018, she gave birth to the zoo's first baby gorilla in two decades. That one and a half year old gorilla is said to be very upset and has attached itself to its father.
