She Was Totally Shocked When A Chimp Came Close To Her... Something Incredible Happened Afterwards

"No man is an island."     ~William Shakespeare

Sir Shakespeare spawned a right quote indeed, but I want to customize it a bit and add my words to it "No Earthian is an island." No one can live in isolation neither a man nor an animal. The heart-touching life story of this elderly chimp, Ponso justifies the statement. 

Ponso has been suffering from abandonment since 2013; since past three years, he is surviving alone on the tiny island in Ivory Coast. Living in a place where there is no source of meal, Ponso would have died if people from the nearby village didn't find him and supplied him with bananas and bread. 

He was really cheerful this month after making a new friend who came from the center of Conservation and pour Chimpanzees. His happiness was on the seventh cloud when he saw the rescuer arriving and immediately hugged the woman whom he considered his lifesaver.

Meet Ponso

Meet Ponso

The only survivor of 20 lab chimps, Ponso was left to die in isolation by the New York Blood Center on an island in Ivory Coast. All his companions were dead due to starvation and disease. The tiny island where he lives has no source of food or water. The kind citizens from a nearby village drop off bananas and bread for him ever since he was left to die.

The new York Blood Center left Ponso abandoned to die years ago. He would have died if Germans hadn't found him and offered him food. Later, the center also passed the announcement of cutting off funding to the other stranded chimps effectively leaving them to starve to death.

A coalition of animal welfare groups and generous members of the public decided to take care of Ponso and other chimps as well.
