There was a going away party at the Dallas Zoo on Saturday for a loner gorilla named Patrick. Patrick is a Western Lowland gorilla and has lived at the Dallas Zoo for 18 years. Even though zoo keepers and the public loved him, he had a hard time getting along with other gorillas. So, Patrick is moving to the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia, South Carolina.
There will be two new male gorillas added to the zoo in Patrick's place named Shana and Zola. In Patrick's honor, you can get into the zoo for just $5 through Sunday.
