It's a story of rescue, rehabilitation, and resilience. The famous animal behavior researcher Linda Koebner helped two laboratory chimpanzees transition to a life outside of bars, then left them to live their lives in a sanctuary where the chimps could live a more normal life. But in the video below, Koebner returns to check on her old friends, unsure if they'd welcome her home after all these years.
According to PBS, Koebner was just a grad student when she began helping the chimps transition from their traumatic life inside cages to a more free and open space.
