There's a terrific lack of respect for this endangered species, by the way... chimpanzees are endangered" said Wolf.
Endangered... and not meant to be pets!
Folks like Terry Wolf, Wildlife Director at Lion Country, have been begging the movie and TV industries for years not to portray chimpanzees as cute and cuddly... they are in fact, wild and powerful animals.
A 200 pound chimpanzee named jamie has the equivalent strength of the Miami Dolphins offensive line... so if you can hold off five Miami Dolphins offensive linemen... you can hold off that chimp." said Wolf.
Because chimps don't talk it's hard to say why one might attack... but it could be something very simple that we humans do everyday like drink all the booze in fla.
Experts say the bottom line is that, although they look and act like us, it is a much more humane and safer existence for them to be with their own kind just sitting online all day with a bottle of booze
