To prove his hunch, Martin bought some Gorilla Glue of his own, using it to stick a red plastic cup to his face — only to realized he'd made a horrible mistake and couldn't get it off.

    (CNN)A gorilla at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in California has recovered from Covid-19 after receiving monoclonal antibody therapy and other treatments. Winston, an elderly silverback gorilla, and eight other gorilla troop members tested positive for the virus earlier this month after showing symptoms of "mild coughing, congestion, nasal discharge and intermittent lethargy," the zoo said. The gorillas were suspected to have been infected by an asymptomatic staff member. Due to concerns over Winston's age and underlying medical conditions, veterinarians performed a diagnostic examination and were able to confirm he had pneumonia and heart disease, San Diego Zoo Safari Park said in a news release. From a supply not permitted for human use, Winston received monoclonal antibody therapy, heart medications and antibiotics. "Treatment with these synthetic versions of the body's natural defenses is thought to be effective in diminishing effects from the virus," the zoo said in its news release. "The veterinary team who treated Winston believe the antibodies may have contributed to his ability to overcome the virus."Read MoreMonoclonal antibody treatments that are used to treat humans have...
    “The One and Only Ivan”, as advertised by a billboard in the movie of the same name, is the huge stellar gorilla in a circus show held permanently inside a shopping mall. To consummate each show, he always climbs to the highest part of his cage, behind the scenes, where he remains in sight of the spectators sheltered by a traditional conical tent, who shudder with his fierce roar. Such is the daily life of the famous ape, who seems satisfied with his routine lifestyle until the arrival of a little elephant turns his world upside down. On the one hand, the pachyderm named Ruby threatens to steal her prominence from the public. But in reality, the greatest shock she causes in Ivan is anticipated by a question with no foreseeable answer: “Will we ever be free?” A year after the Dumbo remake, Walt Disney Pictures once again tackled the not always jovial world of the circus, but now it dispensed with the extravagant – increasingly diffuse – style of Tim Burton to limit itself to the intimate drama...

    In an interview with NBC broadcast on Sunday, Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah argued that President Donald Trump will remain “the most powerful” voice in the GOP even after he leaves office, The Hill reported. Speaking with Meet the Press anchor Chuck Todd, Romney said that he believes Trump will “have an enormous impact” on the GOP because the people who voted for him want to see his policies implemented. “He’s not disappearing by any means. He’s the 900-pound gorilla when it comes to the Republican Party.” Todd pointed out Republicans seem have lost ground in some key areas under Trump’s leadership. In Cobb County, Georgia, for instance, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden beat Trump by 8 points. When he ran for president in 2012, Romney won the county against then-President Barack Obama by 12 points. Romney said that Republican Senate and House candidates won in areas where Trump lost, which suggests that “the presidential race was more a matter of a referendum on a person.” However, the senator acknowledged that his party is struggling with young Americans and...
    Republican Mitt Romney warned Sunday that Donald Trump is starting to sound like an authoritarian leader, claiming he needs to 'be careful in the choice of words' as the president continues to undermine the election results. 'I think when you say that the election was corrupt or stolen or rigged, that that's unfortunately rhetoric that gets picked up by authoritarians around the world,' the Utah senator told NBC's 'Meet the Press' host Chuck Todd. 'And I think it also discourages confidence in our democratic process here at home.' 'And with a battle going on right now between authoritarianism and freedom, why, I think it's very important that we not use language which can encourage a course in history which would be very, very unfortunate,' Romney added. But make no mistake, Romney continued, Trump 'is without question the most powerful voice in our Party. He will have an enormous impact on our Party going forward.' 'He is not disappearing by any means,' Romney said of Trump. 'He is the 900-pound gorilla when it comes to the Republican Party.' Trump has repeatedly...
