    Asking the state to prevent freak occurrences like this is an impossibility, come on. The victim could have prevented this herself if she didnt come to her friends' house to face a wild animal on drugs.

    It wasnt a freak occurrance...the state had already identified it as a threat. It has already escaped once. I posted 3 different quotes that showed they knew it was dangerous.

    WHere did it say that? And why is the assumption that she knew it was dangerous? People dont see fangs or claws when they look at a chimp...it could have been just a matter of needing 2 people to round it up and put it back in a cage.

    Do you need to see "fangs and claws" on an elephant to know that it is a very dangerous animal?

    This is what is so funny about liberals, they live and think in la-la-land.

    So, you cant support your claim about her going over there to help with a 'dangerous animal.' Got it.

    La la land? Only what's been shown to the public as cute and cuddly on TV for 50+ years. Elephants arent shown that way. Nice try at diversion tho.

    Re: Connecticut chimp attack victim seeks right to sue state

    For the record, you have to be an idiot to get anywhere near an adult chimp of either sex.

    Notice on TV...you will NEVER see anyone acting with an adult chimp. Adult chimps have black faces. Juveniles have pink and then pink mottled faces as they age. No one handles adult chimps. No one with a brain. As with ANY sexually mature wild animal, or even stallions and bulls, they are unpredictable and dangerous. People keeping such animals are living on borrowed time....they always end up caging the animals.

    As an ex-park ranger I have alot of experience with wild animals, including dealing with exotic escapes and those intentionally released when they got too dangerous or too big. And I lived with a zookeeper for 13 yrs.

    But even I see how ignorant most Americans are about this stuff...I did environmental education for years.

    Aren't snakes and spiders and well anything the state has already identified as threats, still threats, regardless of what action the state has taken to remove the threat? Was owning the chimp illegal? Answer.. No it wasn't and since danger is a subjective characterization, assessed by persons not necessarily qualified to make such assessments, the state is not liable nor should it be. Buyer beware, or put more simply... Watch where you walk idiot.

    A 200lb male chimpanzee IS a dangerous animal. Just as the state official warned, right?

    So which is it? The animal was dangerous, or it was not? Are you going to now say that the state owes the public an obligation to police common sense?

    There was also a TV show about a Genie that lived in a bottle, you believe that too? Chimps on TV shows may be anything but cute and cuddly, TV shows are not real. You are aware of that aren't you?

    It doesn't matter how a thing is "shown" what matter is how it is. If your rebuttal is that the victim did not believe that an angry 200lb male chimpanzee was dangerous because of what she saw on a TV show, then my advice to someone that stupid would be to stay in the house. Heck, someone that dumb should be afraid of flying monkeys..... since everything on TV is real, right?

    Anyone else think this was going to be another Bush thread from the title.
