As a biography Charla Nash is a 56 year old woman born November 10th, 1953. She was living in Stamford Connecticut when attacked by Travis the Chimp on February 16 2009.

The incident left her blinded with horrific facial lacerations. At 210 pounds the chimp was the size of a large man. It ripped off her nose and hands, and caused other significant damage to her face.

The chimp’s owner named Sandy Herold was her friend. She stabbed the chimp repeatedly with a kitchen knife, and he was soon after shot be police who arrived on the scene.

While in the hospital Charla Nash battled for her life. A team of specialists worked tireless to save her and pieced together what they could of her extremities. A trust fund was set up for her benefit in which the public donated money to her situation.

She tells Oprah that she has no memory of the attack. All she remembers is waking up from a coma in the hospital to hear that she was mauled by a chimpanzee. At least that is what she tells Oprah Winfrey. Chimp victim doesn’t recall attack? Wow!

    I hate everyone that says they feel sorry for the chimp. How about having a monkey rip your face and then tell us who you feel sorry for? Monkeys don’t make good pets.

    I have a 25lb house cat (domestic) and even he goes a little wild and scares me, I can’t imagine an animal 250lbs becoming wild again in the home.

    We often learn life lessons only after it’s too late.

    Sorry to all parties concerned.

    As to the victim’s lack of memory, it’s not unusual for a person to have no memory at all after a horrible accident or attack. The “impressions” in the brain just don’t get made sometimes in such a case. They’re just not there.

    Chimps and all other wild animals should be banned from ownership period. This situation should never have happened if some common sense law was applied about what is a pet and what is not. People’s rights for pet ownership should be limited to some dogs, cats and birds. The rest of the animals should be left alone. Having a chimp as a pet is just insane and cruel to boot.

    I bet the Chimp, Travis, was a Muslim. They are the violent thugs of the earth.

    The REAL Mr. Practical Says:

    No way Travis was a Muslim. He was way too smart for that. We’re talking about a chimp that enjoyed the finer things in life such as wine, cigars, and classical music. Travis could not be brainwashed.

    When will human beings realize that the wild is just that — WILD! And, people need to stop interrupting the wild by domesticating these animals! LEAVE NATURE ALONE PEOPLE!!!

    Blah blah blah…minutiae minutiae…drivel…

    but wait…what’s this? The voice of reason from the (clearly) omnipotent one Le Dude?

    Woe be unto the rest of you for your self-important, boring rhetoric!
