Stephen Fry and actress Ali MacGraw have lent their helping hands to remove these bears from dangerous conditions and place them into Animals Asia's care and rehabilitation at its Tam Dao bear sanctuary.

After her moment of bliss, Bao Bao does a backward somersault and later pounces on her mother, Mei Xiang (seriously, you have to watch this).

When one monkey's friend passed out from an electric shock he received from a railway track in Kanpur, India, he turned into George Clooney (circa ER) and tried to save his friend's life by administering what looks like CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).
It all plays out in a heart-pumping YouTube video, first with the monkey shaking his lifeless buddy, who appears totally limp when his friend picks him up.
