MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - The Return of Amahoro

June's Dian Fossey Field News has the exciting story of the "return of Amahoro, a 19-year-old silverback, to his natal group (Shinda's)."
[His return] has raised many eyebrows, because just six months ago he had left the group and become a lone silverback! This return is a very rare event, with all group members accepting him as if he had never left, including dominant silverback Shinda himself (who is not normally known for his passive and tolerant nature).
Full story at the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund website.
