Gut Aiderbichl Chimps

Gut Aiderbichl is an animal sanctuary near Vienna

The sanctuary has built special large enclosures to re-home chimps previously used for laboratory research.

Some of the chimps were captured in the wild and have spent the last 30 years in a 5′ x 5′ wire cage while others were born in captivity and have never been outside.

The following vid shows the chimps exploring their new environment – (love the way the leading chimps give each other a reassuring hug before venturing out into this scary new world
