When I was about six years old, our mom was away and had this elderly lady watching my sisters and I. Anyway, her sister called and we went over to the woman's house and her son had a chimpanzee there and it was loose. It was climbing the curtains all wild and then it scratched my twin sister. As kids we were fascinated of course, but after it went after my sister, we were scared of it.
