Bonobo Compassion

There was a bonobo at a zoo in England who found a little bird, a starling, that had hit the window of the bonobo’s enclosure. The starling was stunned and she picked it up. She took it in her hand and she climbed to the highest point of her enclosure, the highest tree. She wrapped her feet across the tree so that she had her hands free and she unfolded the bird like a little toy airplane and she sent it out.
