Red face Sad for those who have ever been in Barcelona zoo

For those lucky people who have visited Barcelona and especially its Zoo I have a bad new, Copito de Nieve, the only albine gorilla in the world is going to die in weeks, so vets say, the cause of that is that's it has a skin cancer, his albine condition has made of him the only gorilla ever that has that kind of cancer as usually gorillas are black haired and skined.....
Vets have said as well it's a quiestion of weeks and rejected the possibility of surgery as it'd be too painful and wouldn't avoid the final result. They have rejected as well the possibility of clonation but after its death ADN will be taken and kept
Currently Copito is 40 yo

That is sad.
We were in Barcalona recently and read about him in all the tourist stuff. We thought about going to the zoo just to see him but we didn't go in the end because I don't really like zoos; it's great to see exotic species close up and in the flesh but I always come away feeling a bit depressed because they are deprived of what makes them so awesome - their wildness and freedom.
But I wish I had gone now.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

Copito

Don´t listen to a word I say
The screams all sound the same
Though the truth may vary this
Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
