Bobo comes to town 1951 ( Anacortes ) - There are few Anacortes residents as instantly recognizable as Bobo the Gorilla . Born in the July of 1951 , Bobo was taken from Africa to Ohio by a hunter who found him "abandoned . " Anacortes fisherman Bill Lowman bought Bobo at an early age and took him to town , where Bobo became quite the attraction . Everyone wanted to know about the family that owned a great ape , and see the gorilla in action - Bobo even got onto the cover of Life Magazine once . Unfortunately , by 22 months it was clear that Bobo was too large and strong for the Lowmans to handle . Bobo was moved to Woodland Park Zoo where zookeepers would attempt in vain to provide him a mate - a gorilla named Fifi . Bobo died at age 17 although his lifespan should have been closer to 50 . His stuffed body is now occasionaly displayed at Seattle ' s Museum of History and Industry .
