And, as it turned out, Rocky would become a media sensation yet again. When Miller stood in front of his exhibit, Rocky left the main group of orangutans and came over to the glass. It appeared, in fact, as if he was intrigued by something. In August 2017 Miller would explain the situation to Fox 59, saying, “He immediately spotted me and came over to the window, and he was very engulfed in everything I had going on.”
When Rocky came towards Miller, however, the Indiana native had not expected such a sweet and heartbreaking reaction from the animal. Indeed, in the video of the interaction, filmed by Costello, Rocky appears truly concerned by the woman’s burns and bandages.
