“I love him and he loves me”
A monkey-loving woman has been banned from visiting a male chimpanzee at a zoo in Antwerp, Belgium, after officials declared their relationship unhealthy for the animal’s socialization with other chimps.
Unfortunately, the zoo has since put the kibosh on their unorthodox love affair as it’s reportedly caused Chitah to get shunned by his fellow apes.
“When Chita is constantly surrounded by visitors, the other animals ignore him and don’t consider him part of the group,” zoo curator Sarah Lafaut says.
Lafaut explained, “An animal that is too focused on people is less respected by its peers. We want Chita to be a chimpanzee as much as possible.”
Timmermans, for one, is devastated over her ex-communication from the zoo. “I haven’t got anything else,” the heartbroken gal protested. “Why do they want to take that away?’
She added that her exile was especially unfair as other zoo-goers are still allowed to visit her primate paramour.
Our heart goes out to the lady for her attachment to her primate companion.
Is it in our place to intervene, for the sake of the chimpanzee’s well-being and standing among his peers?
