Woman, 92, see gorilla she took care of for 1st time in 60 years
March 17, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A 92-year-old woman who helped raise a famous gorilla named "Bushman" saw him Sunday for the first time in more than 60 years.
"Bushman" lived at the Lincoln Park Zoo. He died in 1951 and is now on exhibit at the Field Museum.
Winifred Hope Smith and her family cared for the gorilla for about a year while they were living in Cameroon, West Africa.
A man left the gorilla with the family while he acquired more exotic animals for zoos and circuses.
