    I'm not a big animal pet fan, the animals I like best are the kinds I put on my dinner plate. If dogs tasted as good as chicken then I'm sure Col. Sanders would have had a recipe for them too.

    But I agree with you, animals do not have human emotions. My point was that in captivity they are not as predictable as people think they are. In the wild chimps stay away from humans.

    I've been doing a massive analysis of stormfront In my spare time lately and let me tell you, the OPs title would take on a whole different meaning on that forum... Almost forgot which site I was on for a second.

    If you purposely wander into a dangerous situation then Im sorry but you will get no sympathy from me.

    Um, no.

    The state recognized that 'pet' as a danger...and did nothing. So that is their problem...and they are being sued.

    Owner, didnt recognize the pet as a danger...and allowed a friend to believe it was safe...and also faced consequences.

    Visitor who doesnt know anything about chimps except what she's seen on TV...cute, just like little humans, they wear clothes, they try to communicate....and her FRIEND allows this pet to be unrestrained in her home. Just like a dog or cat. ....Yeah, it was her problem too, but not her fault. And that is why she will still suffer the consequences but ALSO, end up with a ****load of $$ from the state (and the owner).

    Baloney! The victim's lawyers are going after the state because they think there are deep pockets to pick. Besides, the victim knew the chimp was a problem before she went over there. The victim went to the house to help the owner with the chimp because it was acting up. The victim had been there before, so she knew full well that the animal was there. It's no different than going over there to help with a pet Bengal tiger that got out if it's cage, or a Pitbull. She has no excuse for her voluntary actions to place herself in danger.

    I doubt a huge settlement, but we will see.

    Well I wont dispute that. Esp. since if the state is smart, they will settle rather than go to court.

    No amount of money will help that victim.

    Never said she didnt know it was there...dont start making stuff up....as well as going to 'help?' Is that another invention?


    Here's a good one:

    She knew the danger was there....she went anyway, it's her fault.

    The state knew the danger was there....didnt remove it (as was the law).....it's their fault.

    You have to prove it in court, which will never happen. Good luck finding a "nanny state" big enough to make everyday rainbows and kisses.
