A wayward, 6-foot stuffed gorilla arrived at WDSE-TV in Duluth, Minn. in time for the annual Kids Club Circus last week. Its former owner tried to leave it at a landfill but the gorilla was turned away (it wasn’t construction debris), and it fell from the truck into the path of a state official’s car.
A state trooper somehow sensed WDSE would adopt. The star of Martha Speaks (shown at right with Sgt. Mark Baker) welcomed the toy. Send gorilla name suggestions to: gorilla (at) wdse.org.
