>This afternoon I was trying to figure out why the smoke suddenly got thick by searching on the local TV channel websites when I found this story about a chimpanzee escaping from an animal sanctuary in San Bernardino county.
At first, I thought it was bizarre that someone would try to raise a chimpanzee like a child, but then I got to this part of the story:
Over the Davises’ protests, Moe was taken to an animal sanctuary in Kern County where the couple visited him regularly. But in 2005, when they took a cake to celebrate Moe’s birthday with him, the couple was viciously attacked by two other chimpanzees who had escaped their cages.
The chimps nearly killed St. James Davis, chewing off his nose, testicles and foot and biting off chunks of his buttocks and legs, before the sanctuary owner shot the animals to death.
Personally, I wouldn’t go anywhere near chimps after one had bitten off my nose, foot and chunks of my buttocks and legs.
