Bossou, chillin' at the Zoo
Bossou, the nine-year-old chimpanzee at Dublin Zoo, came to the rescue when he spotted three baby ducklings in possible danger.

BreakingNews.ie reported that the chimp spotted the ducks in a nest at the edge of “Chimp Island”. He rescued them from the water and cradled them.

When the zoo authorities noticed what was going on Bossou was happy to hand them over in exchange for bananas.

The ducks have been given a home at the DSCPA shelter.

Spokesperson for the DSCPA Miriam Kerins said this is a very unusual story. She said “This large chimpanzee, who was a male, cradled the ducklings, looked after them and minded them, thinking they were in danger…I think it's so touching.”
