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.
