    The state has admitted it. LOLOLOL

    The state has not admitted liability, you are either confused or you are making that up.

    True, they didnt admit to legal liability...they admitted they have a law against keeping chimps, that they knew of that chimp and that they considered it dangerous, and that they did not remove it.

    Those are the details of the case so far. A court will have to determine liability. Looks pretty bad for the state. Pretty sure they will settle.

    Details of the case:

    Victim decides to put herself in harms way, knowing full well and in advance that a dangerous animal is already upset and going berserk. A prudent person would have called animal control or the police.

    I hope they dont, the victim was already paid from the chimp owner's estate (who was the true villain in this) and any money from the state will be paid for by taxpayers. I think the state has a strong case in this if they decide to fight it in court, which I hope they do.

    The monkey was purchased before the law which made it illegal to own.

    The state still had the right to remove it. And they had declared it dangerous and told the woman to get rid of it. When she did not, it was their responsibility to remove it.

    I agree, it sucks and isnt fair to the taxpayers. But it should be punitive for the state to prevent such things from happening again.

    As I've written, no amount of money is going to help the victim.

    From the article and state reports:

    "The issue of the private ownership of Travis the chimpanzee continues to be a concern as to public safety," Hinsch wrote in the memo.

    "The animal has reached adult maturity, is very large and tremendously strong. I am concerned that if he feels threatened or if someone enters his territory, he could seriously hurt someone."

    "As you are aware, this is the same chimpanzee that escaped from the owner's car and led local police on a wild chase for hours in downtown Stamford until the animal could be secured back in the car."


    Nowhere in the article did it state that the victim was aware of any danger from the chimp.

    What kind of chimp rips your face and hand off? Too bad it happened in the wrong state.
