CHICAGO (AP) — A baby gorilla is back on display at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, six months after she was seriously injured.

Nayembi (NAY’-ehm-bee) needed emergency surgery  in February after she suffered serious cuts to her face, which zoo keepers believe likely were inflicted by another gorilla. She’s been recovering behind the scenes since the attack.

The 10-month-old was reintroduced to the public on Thursday after being reunited last month with her mother and other members of the zoo’s gorilla troop. She was reintroduced to her father earlier this week for the first time since the winter.

Maureen Leahy is the zoo’s primate curator. She says Nayembi is doing “remarkably well” with the reintroduction process.

All the gorillas are being closely monitored by zoo staff.
