Born in 1962 and captured as a baby, Ivan was brought to a mall in Tacoma, Washington. For 27 years shoppers flocked to the mall to see Ivan, but public pressure built until a better way of life for Ivan was found at Zoo Atlanta. From the Congo to America, and from a local business attraction to a national symbol of animal welfare, Ivan the Shopping Mall Gorilla traveled an astonishing distance in miles and in impact. This is a true story based on the book by Katherine Applegate.
