Koko the Gorilla Has Died

Koko, the gorilla who mastered sign language, has died.

The Gorilla Foundation says  the 46-year-old western lowland gorilla died in its sleep at the  foundation's preserve in California's Sana Cruz mountains on Tuesday.

Koko  was born at the San Francisco Zoo, and Dr. Francine Patterson began  teaching the gorilla sign language that became part of a Stanford  University project in 1974.

The foundation says Koko's capacity for language and empathy opened the minds and hearts of millions. (NBC4)
