Fataki (left), 12, was taking care of his younger brother Fuzu (top), 7, and halfbrother Mahali, 6, in his first outing at Orana Park yesterday. The gorillas, who arrived from Sydney’s Taronga Zoo last month, will make their public debut today. The gorillas are 10 times stronger than the average human, so a $6 million enclosure had to be built for them with 2.5cm thick glass – about six times thicker than the average home window.

A WOMAN was robbed in her driveway by a man who smelled “like faeces” as she prepared for a family holiday. The woman was putting a bag into her car, in the driveway of her Memorial Ave home at about 5.45am yesterday. She was grabbed from behind by a man who wrapped what she thought was a piece of clothing around her neck. He then demanded money before pushing her aside and taking her bag, which contained morphine for treating a back complaint, and various items of clothing. He ran off before she could get a good look at him. The attack happened near the intersection of Greers Rd. Her three children, aged between eight and 13, were asleep inside at the time and her husband was at work. The family had been preparing for a weekend holiday. •Turn to page 3
