Bala Amarasekaran and his wife Sharmila were travelling through a village about 150 miles north of Freetown when they saw a weak and sick baby chimpanzee offered for sale. The animal lovers paid $20 for him suspecting that if he was left without care for much longer, he would probably die. Like most people, Bala and Sharmila knew very little about chimpanzees; let alone how to care for a tiny infant. However, with care and attention, the little chimpanzee began to recover and was named Bruno.
