The Ape and her Young

An ape had two babies. She loved one but not the other. One day the hunters came and the ape picked up the baby she loved to protect it. The other baby jumped onto her back. The ape ran quickly but she was not careful. The head of the baby she loved hit a stone and the baby was killed. The baby she hated hung on to the mother and survived.
