It's been a
Yesterday, Dublin Zoo
And since the news of the 29-year-old silverback's death, there have been thousands of comments on their Facebook post from past visitors to the Zoo who have fond memories of the silverback but one photo in particular has captured the public's imagination.
Photographer Anthony Lynch was in the Phoenix Park last night when he noticed something in the sky just after he learned of Harry's death.
"I was sitting in my car waiting for the sun to set behind the Phoenix monument and looking through fb when I seen that Harry the gorilla had died after years in Dublin Zoo which I happened to be outside. Maybe I'm staring at the sun too long but does anyone else see a gorilla kissing goodbye to the phoenix park monument?"
And people are in overwhelming agreement that that's exactly what it looks like.
His photo has been liked over 50,000 times and been shared by the Dublin Zoo Facebook page, who thanked Anthony for taking the beautiful photo.
