British conservation activist and gorilla expert Damian Aspinall recently sparked controversy after uploading a video of his (then) 18-month-old daughter playing with a gorilla.
In the video, the little girl can be seen playing with a gorilla inside a cage. Despite the wide criticisms of Aspinall’s action, his daughter, Tansy, now 22, says her dad would never put her in danger.
Watch the video which Aspinall says was released to show the world the softer side of gorillas and to raise money for conservation efforts.
