Those chimps are smart

"He acts like a naughty schoolboy by hiding the cigarette when staff approach" - zoo spokesman Daryl Barnes


Smoking chimp who can't quit
3.35PM, Fri Apr 22 2005

A chimpanzee at a South African zoo is struggling to kick the habit after learning to smoke by mimicking visitors.

Charlie, a chimp at the Bloemfontein Zoo, has been picking up cigarettes thrown to him by visitors and smoking them.

Zoo officials said he probably picked up the habit by observing humans.

"Baby chimps pick up habits by mimicking adults and we think he started mimicking smokers at his enclosure which probably led to smokers throwing him cigarettes," said spokesman Daryl Barnes.

Mr Barnes said Charlie was already showing the signs of a true nicotine addict: "He even acts like a naughty schoolboy by hiding the cigarette when staff approach the area."

Mr Barnes said that the zoo was determined to help him quit.[/q]

This got a mention on Tonight with Jonathan Ross on BBC1 last night...

A group of drunk monkeys rampaged through an Indian village after stealing a specially fermented drink.

The primates stole the liquor made from marijuana leaves which residents were preparing for a religious festival.

Stunned Baralapokhari villagers struck back at the inebriated monkeys with sticks and other weapons and drove them away.

Three residents sustained injuries requiring hospital treatment, reports The Times of India.

The intoxicating 'pana' drink had been prepared from marijuana leaves as part of an offering to Hindu gods for the Oriya new year.

The villagers had kept it in pots outside their huts, an official said.

Monkeys that passed out have since been returned to the forest.
