Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English. 

Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.

When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.

It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.

Colorado’s Family Planning Initiative has brought free and low-cost birth control to teens since 2009. The program has saved the state millions on teen-birth-related healthcare, but it’s not a state-funded plan. The entire $23-million budget was provided by a confidential, private donor.   Source
