LOOK: Orphaned baby chimp uses oxygen machine to help her breathe
An orphaned chimpanzee in the care of an animal sanctuary in Freetown, Sierra Leone in Africa is using an oxygen machine to help her breathe while battling a case of viral pneumonia.
The Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary shared the image of baby Ana with an oxygen mask as she’s being cuddled by a carer on Facebook on Thursday, Oct. 25.
“Little Ana is receiving oxygen as she has a viral broncho-pneumonia, which causes inflammation of the lungs and breathing difficulties,” wrote the sanctuary. “Thankfully, Ana is recovering well.” KM
