Losing a parent can be one of the most tragic experiences of a person's life. As photographer Phil Moore shows, this feeling of deep sadness is not exclusive to humans.

For this mountain gorilla whose mother was killed by poachers, the pain is all too real. In an emotional display of mourning, the dismayed gorilla holds onto park ranger Patrick Karabaranga for support.
