Baby gorilla cared for by 10 human surrogates at Cincinnati Zoo – Primate team leader Ron Evans explains

We have a story this morning about the unlikeliest and furriest family around.

Meet Gladys. She is a tw-month-old gorilla. If you can believe it, this adorable creature was rejected by her mother in Texas. She was moved to the Cincinatti Zoo where she's being raised by a rotating group of human surrogates until a gorilla assumes the role of surrotage mother.

This morning on "Early Start," primate team leader Ron Evans, wearing a furry vest and holding Gladys, explains how the unconventional method will help the gorilla survive.

7,000 warned of potential HIV, hepatitis exposure – Ed Lavandera reports


(CNN) - About 7,000 patients of a Tulsa, Oklahoma, dental practice were being notified they could have been exposed to HIV and hepatitis over the past six years, health authorities said Thursday.

Dentist W. Scott Harrington voluntarily stopped practicing when the joint investigation by the Tulsa Health Department and the Oklahoma State Department of Health began, the Tulsa agency said in a statement. "The dentist is cooperating with investigators through his attorney," the department said.

According to the State Board of Dentistry, the investigation into Harrington's practice found "numerous violations of health and safety laws and major violations of the State Dental Act," the health department said.

This morning, CNN's Ed Lavandera reports on the latest in the investigation on "Early Start."

Ivan Watson: Cyprus banks reopen under tight security and strict 'draconian' measures, but 'situation's pretty calm'


For the first time since the euro was launched on Jan 1, 1999, a member country has restricted how much money individuals and companies can take across its borders.

The tiny island nation put the extensive measures in place to prevent a run on its banks as they reopened around noon local time (6 a.m. ET) for the first time since March 16.

Cypriots have been queuing at cash machines since then as it became clear that deposits would be raided as part of a bailout by the European Union and International Monetary Fund.

New report reveals fast food kids' menus that aren't meeting calorie standards – Elizabeth Cohen breaks it down

It's no secret that fast food isn't exactly healthy food for your kids. But a new report reveals that even some restaurants with so-called "healthy meals," have their fair share of kiddie calorie bombs on the menu.

Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen breaks down the stunning numbers and the possible good options out there. “They took a look at 50 big restaurant chains and found 91% of them don't meet the nutritional guidelines of their own association, of the National Restaurant Association,” Cohen reports. “They don't meet those nutritional guidelines for kids. And in fact, some of the meals have more than twice as many calories as a child is supposed to get, depending upon the age of the child.” Cohen says the only restaurant that gets an “A” for doing a great job is Subway.

Trending on the web this morning is an update on displeasing news for fans of one of television’s hottest shows, and the new Miami Dolphins logo splashing in South Florida.
