Jack the Gorilla – Part III

Ofir and I passed through a series of harrowing roadblocks where baby Jack was almost discovered by policemen. Though we feared he might not have survived the trip in the box, he was okay when we reached Ofir’s apartment. Two years before, the gorilla in the photograph wandered out of the jungle into Abong-Mbang, the town where we’d gotten Jack. The silverback was shot near the hospital by a retired gendarme.
