    Rallycairn, thanks for all the info. I did feel sorry for the chimp in the sense it was killed because of the owner lack of intelligence.

    how awful.................I hope it did not affect her eyesight, hearing, smell. What a truly horrific injury, poor woman, I really feel sorry for her. I recall a transplant was done successfully to a woman in France who had an injury from a dog who ripped her face off. I heard it was successful.

    Rallycairn - interesting post - thanks. I did not know that about parrots and your example about the chimps going after group two........interesting observation. Sorta like gangs (humans)

    I wonder how chimps compare to gorillas? Jane Goodall lived with Gorillas and they seemed to accept her but was that an anomaly or just a different primate?

    The gorillas stayed in the wild when Jane Goodall was studying them. They weren't dressed like little furry children and washed in tubs.

    Winnipeg- The woman is a candidate for a face transplant, but she did lose her eyes.

    Trained chimps seem more wild, compared to a trained Gorilla, from what I've seen.
