Yes, the chimpanzee was a pet, but these animals—whether pets or fresh from the wild—retain their instincts; plus, a 140-pounds chimp can easily handle four fit men, never mind a 200-pound chimp vs. a weak woman. I feel sorry for the woman and my prayers go to her and her loved ones. --188.8.131.52 04:40, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
