There is a lot to be seen in the town of Brownsville, we do hope to make at least one more trip there. It is located about 60 miles south of McAllen. Our main goal Thursday in traveling to Brownsville was to visit the zoo. One resident of the zoo has been making the news lately, and she is the one who prompted us to make the trip there yesterday. I am referring here to a female gorilla born about nine weeks ago. Apparently her mother did not have adequate maternal skills so the baby is being sent to the Cincinnati zoo on Friday where there is a surrogate mother available for her. At the Porter zoo there is no lactating mom for her, but the greater issue is that her mom came from the Cincinnati zoo. She was considered an outsider at the Porter zoo, and her baby would also be shunned by the female gorillas.
