Man Attacked by Chimpanzees

St. James Davis owned a pet chimpanzee, but had to give it up to an "animal sanctuary" after it bit off part of a woman's finger in Davis' home.

On Thursday, Davis and his wife went to visit their former pet at the sanctuary to celebrate the pet's birthday. Two other chimps escaped their enclosures and attacked Davis and his wife.

The chimps chewed most of Davis' face off and tore off his testicles and foot, Chealander said.

You might want to read that again. And again . . . .

The two chimps were shot to death, and Davis barely survived.

The lesson? Don't try to keep undomesticated, wild animals as pets. For their sake primarily, but also for yours. Details here from ABC
