Grunting Ohio zoo workers act as moms to gorilla

This photo provided by the Cincinnati Zoo on Friday shows a baby gorilla named Gladys holding the finger of a surrogate human mother at the zoo in Cincinnati. The baby gorilla was born Jan. 29 at a Texas zoo to a first-time mother who wouldn't care for her. Zoo workers and volunteers are acting as surrogate mothers to prepare the baby to be introduced to two female gorillas who might accept her.
