    Chimps Maul Visitor at Calif. Sanctuary


    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - A couple's plans for a birthday party for their former pet chimpanzee turned tragic when two other chimps at an animal sanctuary escaped from their cage and attacked. The man was critically injured with massive wounds to his face, body and limbs, and the attacking animals were shot dead.

    St. James and LaDonna Davis were at the Animal Haven Ranch in Caliente to celebrate the birthday of Moe, a 39-year-old chimpanzee who was taken from their suburban Los Angeles home in 1999 after biting off part of a woman's finger.

    Moe was not involved in Thursday's attack, said Steve Martarano, a spokesman for the California Department of Fish and Game.

    The couple had brought Moe a cake and were standing outside his cage when Buddy and Ollie, two of four chimpanzees in the adjoining cage, attacked St. James Davis, Martarano said. Officials have not determined how the chimps got out of their enclosure, he said.

    The son-in-law of the sanctuary's owner killed the attacking animals, Martarano said.

    ``He saw what was happening and had one kind of weapon with him and then got another he felt would be more substantial and shot them,'' Martarano said. ``He pretty much saved a life.''

    St. James Davis had severe facial injuries and would require extensive surgery in an attempt to reattach his nose, Dr. Maureen Martin of Kern Medical Center told KGET-TV of Bakersfield. His testicles and a foot also were severed, Kern County Sheriff's Cmdr. Hal Chealander told The Bakersfield Californian.

    Davis was transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he was undergoing surgery late Thursday, Martarano said.

    Buddy, a 16-year-old male chimp, initiated the attack and after he was shot, Ollie, a 13-year-old male, grabbed the gravely injured man and dragged him down the road, authorities said.

    ``Everybody was trying to get the chimp off,'' Chealander said.

    Two other chimps, females named Susie and Bones, also escaped from the cage they shared with Ollie and Buddy, prompting sheriff's deputies, animal control workers, and Fish and Game officials to launch a search.

    The wayward pair were recovered by Animal Haven owner Virginia Brauer after five hours. Martarano said one chimp was two miles from the sanctuary, located 25 miles southeast of Bakersfield.

    The Davises had waged an unsuccessful legal fight to bring Moe back to their West Covina home and visited him regularly at the sanctuary where he had been living since October. They brought the chimp from Africa decades ago after a poacher killed his mother.

    Animal Haven Ranch has held state permits to shelter animals since 1985 and serves as a sanctuary for animals that have been confiscated or discovered lost, Martarano said.

    It is allowed to house up to nine primates at one time and is home to one spider monkey and six chimpanzees, he said. The permits are held by Virginia and Ralph Brauer, whom neighbors described as responsible animal lovers.

    ``She's devoted her whole life to taking care of these chimpanzees,'' said Jeanne Miller, a family friend.

    The only reason that this is funny is that the guys balls got ripped off

    Their monkey bit off a finger.
    Other monkeys basically tried to kill them.

    There is a lesson here and it goes full circle.

    [​IMG]Dude got his nuts and foot ripped off by chimps. No word on the damage that Saint James inflicted on the monkeys. I gotta believe a dude would put some serious hurt on those F'ers while trying to fend them off. No way I lose nuts without ripping something off the attackers.

    You wouldn't and couldn't do anything to them. Those things are frigging insane! Alot stronger than us too. I have seen fights these things get into on the Discovery Channel and it is not pretty.

    when you dress a wild animal in a sunday dress and bonnet Mother Nature is just biding her time, waiting patiently to get a chance to rip off your nuts.
    Stupid fuckers
  9. Damn!! I can't believe the chimps would have been able to get out of their cage. I would end up beating those fuckin' chimps to death myself if they had come anywhere near me or my balls.

    Pet 200-pound chimp killed by officers after it attacks woman in Connecticut home

    Rampaging chimp was given Xanax for anxiety

    HARTFORD, Conn. - A 200-pound domesticated chimpanzee who once starred in TV commercials for Old Navy and Coca-Cola was shot dead by police after a violent rampage that left a friend of its owner badly mauled.

    Shortly before the attack, the animal was given the anti-anxiety drug Xanax because it had been agitated, the police said.

    Sandra Herold, who owned the 15-year-old chimp named Travis, wrestled with the animal after it inexplicably attacked her friend Charla Nash, 55.

    Nash had gone to Herold's home in Stamford on Monday to help her coax the chimp back into the house after he got out, police said. After the animal lunged at Nash when she got out of her car, Herold ran inside to call 911 and returned armed.

    "She retrieved a large butcher knife and stabbed her longtime pet numerous times in an effort to save her friend, who was really being brutally attacked," said Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin.

    After the initial attack, Travis ran away and started roaming Herold's property until police arrived, setting up security so medics could reach the critically injured woman, Conklin said.

    But the chimpanzee returned and went after several of the officers, who retreated into their cars, Conklin said. Travis knocked the mirror off a cruiser before opening its door and starting to get in, trapping the officer.

    That officer shot the chimpanzee several times, Conklin said.
