    what do you mean?! She went to see an animal most people would see only at a zoo or the wild. What does she expect to happen? If you want to hang with danger expect the danger!

    Chimps are aggressive, they are not always friendly! Common sense and instinct should be taking over. Wild animal, a hell of a lot stronger than you, I probably should be thinking I shouldn't be so close especially if my only protection is him on a leash.
    Oh, there is another primate(that's like a chimp) that loves to touch and hug, if it touches you or charla are you both going to be suing for sexual assault because the monkey grabs your private parts and shows you his or her own?
    OMG. I can tell I can't have a logical and rational discussion with you on this when you clearly have no grasp of the facts involved. Toodles.

    Holy crap, what? I've slept in the same bed with my dogs and cats, does that imply that something untoward went on?

    Geez.

    Why even go there?

    Why not go there? This is just a discussion site. I think the woman was totally over the top and may possibly have had a sexual relationship with the chimp. Just my anonymous opinion, feel free to disagree.

    Mauler Chimp Bathed, Ate, Slept With Owner


    In a strange twist to the story of the mauler chimp who attacked and ate the face off of his victim Monday, it has been revealed the owner of the chimp permitted the animal to bathe, eat, and even sleep with her. The owner is a childless widow.

    After having lost her son to an accident and her husband only a few years ago, Sandy Herold began to have a closer relationship with the Travis the chimp, inviting him to made-for-two baths, feeding him wine served in flutes and feeding him lobster.

    Travis reportedly became upset if she left with company and kissed her sweetly if she left by herself. The chimp would comb her hair and paint her pictures which she proudly hung on the refrigerator. It is unclear how this factored into the attack.

    It did come across that way to me. Not a very helpful contribution to the conversation from my point of view.

    What is moronic or liberal about holding an individual financially responsible for the damages caused by their own poor choices?

    Here's what you said:

    I never said you'd be at fault! I said if got attacked by a wild animal when you didn't need to see it as close to it as you did. You shouldn't be suing because what do you expect from a WILD ANIMAL ESPECIALLY A CHIMP?
    Chimps are aggressive, they are not always friendly! Common sense and instinct should be taking over. Wild animal, a hell of a lot stronger than you, I probably should be thinking I shouldn't be so close especially if my only protection is him on a leash.
    It would be one thing if she was wandering in the jungle and a chimp attacked her. She went to a friend's house. This friend owned the wild animal and had knowledge of the animal's propensity to bite. Are you implying that she should not bear any responsbility?

    Oh, there is another primate(that's like a chimp) that loves to touch and hug, if it touches you or charla are you both going to be suing for sexual assault because the monkey grabs your private parts and shows you his or her own?
    Huh? This is why I said I couldn't discuss this with you. This makes absolutely no sense. What this tells me is that you are not looking at the specific facts in this case.
