Scary stuff.
If you're going to on one put a freaking self destruct chip in it. Then the day it goes "ape****" just...beep.
Have you seen that show, "1000 Ways to Die"?

I did have a pirahna once. He lived a while.....I think he died from a bad batch of goldfish. I was mad about that. He lived by himself in a 55G tank. I fed him raw liver and chicken. On occasion I fed him the feeder fish.

I think I'll get another one when I get back.

Later.

It seriously freaks me out. A guy got mauled by a group of Chimps out in California and they ripped his face and his nuts and his hands off first!
any one of those things would be tragic.
Now he probably watches Project X and says "F@#% It, kills those little bastards!"

(CNN) -- A woman has been hospitalized with serious injuries to her face, neck and hands after a pet chimpanzee attacked her at a friend's home in Stamford, Connecticut.


Travis is shown in 2003, when he escaped and "wreaked havoc" on the streets of Stamford, Connecticut.

1 of 2 Charla Nash, 55, had just arrived at her friend Sandra Herold's house when the chimp, named Travis, jumped on her and began biting and mauling her, according to Stamford Police Capt. Rich Conklin, who said the attack was unprovoked.

Herold had called Nash over to her house to help get Travis back inside after he used a key to free himself from the house.

After the attack, Herold was unable to pull the primate off her friend. She then called 911 before grabbing a butcher knife and stabbing the chimp, who police said was like a child to her.

Stamford police shot the chimp multiple times when he ripped off a side mirror and tried to enter a police cruiser, Conklin said. Travis returned to the house and died inside.

Conklin estimated Travis to be in his 20s, weighing close to 200 pounds.

The police captain also said this isn't the first interaction his officers have had with Travis -- the chimp escaped in 2003 and "wreaked havoc" on the streets of Stamford for a couple of hours.

In 2005, a different chimp escaped from California's Animal Haven Ranch and chewed off a man's nose and genitals.

During an interview after that attack, wildlife expert Jeff Corwin told CNN's Anderson Cooper that chimpanzees are "absolutely powerful."

"It's often said that an adult chimpanzee weighing in at 150 pounds is three to seven times stronger than a human being," Corwin said.

"The thing about chimpanzees is, we sort of look at them through our rose-colored cultural glasses of the cute little chimp in the 'Tarzan' movie. Those are very young chimps. Chimps grow up, they become very powerful. They are very complex in their behavior. They have a whole range of emotions, including violence and anger."

http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/02/16/chi...ef=mpstoryview
Supposedly the chimp was in a tree and refused to come down, so the owner called her friend over to help get the monkey down.

I've also heard that when chimpanzees attack any male, the first thing they do is tear off the genitals.

Soooo, if I had a neighbor who asked me to help her get her chimp down from a tree, the only way I would help her is with a hi-powered rifle from the safety of one of my windows. Otherwise, I'd just call the police or animal control.

This chimp weighed 200 pounds and most chimpanzees have the strength of ten men. So anyone who thinks they can keep one as a household pet is really an idiot.

Anyone thinking about having a chimpanzee as a pet should be required to listen to that. Truly horrible.
