    Karl – like the other poster said, Please eradicate yourself.

    This is a tragic event caused by dumb people and dumb authorities. Who authorized this monkey to live in a home and why? Who keeps a monkey, albeit one who is sick and needs medication in a home??? I hope everyone involved learns a lesson and I’m happy that everyone gets sued, if that’s what it takes to protect me and my family from dumb people and wild animals.

    I used to work at a zoo. Monkeys and apes are very cute and can be nice, but they are wild animals – very strong wild animals. They can turn on someone instantly for no apparent reason. If this victim had been a friend for any length of time, she obviously knew the risk when she willingly went to the house to help. She had to know she was putting herself in a dangereous situation. Stupid!!! But then again people file stupid law suits all of the time and win. Such a shame.

    With the kind of injuries suffered to her head, she surely had a concussion. Anyone with a head injury or concussion has compounds released in the brain, often permanently blocking memory leading up to the injury. This can be previous seconds, minutes, hours, or even days. Of course she has no memory of the attack!
    As far as the animal, many a good dog has also attacked because of something triggered. It could have been fear from something she wore or did, viewed as a threat. We love our pets, but they are animals, not humans.

    Many note here it was and is a wild animal. But be it wild or tame like fido or kitty all animals will attack all animlas will bite. Only a fool thinks or feels they will not. And to those who say this group or that group of chimps will not kill get real both do the same thing just not as often take off those rose collored glasses and open your eyes to the real world, violence occures less often for one has better food resources than the other.

    I can’t believe they killed the chimp, he was a wild animal and should be respected not treated like a common pet, not that I wish harm on anybody but she kind of deserved it
