Two Gorillas Leaving Wichita for Florida

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Two gorillas that had been the first to arrive at a Wichita zoo thirteen years ago are headed to warmer climes in Florida. The Sedgwick County Zoo says primate brothers Shango and Barney will be leaving next Friday for the Miami zoo, giving the Kansas zoo more space for its nine other gorillas. 28-eight-year-old Shango and 23-year-old Barney came to the Sedgwick County Zoo in 2004.  The move was recommended by the Gorilla Species Survival Plan.
