A Belgian woman has been banned from visiting a Belgian zoo after she was accused of having a harmful relationship to socializing chimpanzees. “I love that animal and it loves me,” Eddie Timmerman told ATV of his exes.
As shown in some images, female and male chimpanzees, called cheetahs, have been blowing kissing and sharing weekly attention for the past four years. The woman joins the primate and considers the ban, which has been valid since last Thursday (19), an absurdity. “I don’t have anything else, why did they want to take it from me?” She tells Belgian TV, in tears.
According to the zoo, the relationship between humans and primates harmed the chimpanzee’s social life, as other animals in the group began to ignore him when he became related to Timmerman and other visitors.
“When the pyre is constantly surrounded by visitors, the other animals ignore it and don’t consider it part of the group,” explains zoo caretaker Sarah LaFault, who still says the animal is kept in captive groups for about 15 hours a day. is kept out of. .
However, this process is unlikely to be reversed, as the chimpanzee has spent more than half of its life as a domestic animal before being delivered to the zoo.
For example, in 2008, the primate was involved in a violent fight with other male monkeys in captivity. As a result, the pyre likes people but not monkeys.
