Read details of Charla Nash’s life below, see her photos, and see the Oprah interview on video as well.

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 really have to ask why people watch Oprah for, when she promotes stories like this. Maybe Oprah should have the owner (you know – equal time) of the chimp on to ask her about the bubble baths and the bed time cuddling that she (the owner) did with the chimp. Don’t believe me? Then read the initial news clippings about this story. These people are more than demented. And why do we want this crap on TV – Daytime yet! – Bad enough it made the news!

    Le Dude checking in once again … nice to hear reasonable people like In Summary are involved in this discussion. As I stated earlier, I speak for all chimps (namely due to the fact that I am a chimp). I live alone, pay my bills on time, hold down a job, a mortgage. I’m putting two kids through school … yeah, I drink a little from time to time, but chimps feel stress too.

    Anyway, I feel that chimps and other primates (except for Gibbons – ewwww!) should not be owned. Unless there are kegs in the house.

    I don’t understand how the city can be sued if they were never called in to control or remove the animal, and as far as 50 million, boy I wish Ms Nash could get it, but how? I doubt the owner has it and I doubt her insurance would even have anything to cover a situation like this.I hope she does jail time though. These animals are never ever safe once they reach maturity, there is a very good interview with Jeff Corwin that goes into that. And most areas don’t even have a real animal control officer, let alone any kind of statutes to cover this- face it, how many times are you called upon to regulate a martini drinking chimp who is forced to live and act like a human? Pure criminal stupidity and abuse on the part of the owner.

    the damage has been done. we can’t blame the chimp and charla. i guess the lesson here is do not own wild animals as pets. cuz when things go wrong, everyone is a victim.

    Whoa … Le Dude was a bit hungover from the escapades during which I made my last series of posts. Still, I maintain that I agree with every single thing Le Dude has said. He’s, er, I mean, I am quite intelligent .. albeit a tad hungover (I was out drinking last night with some chimp friends)

    Poor chimp. It was fair to keep the chimp locked up, its a wild animal. which means wild animals stay in the wild. The owner of the chimp is an idiot. Nex time call animal control and get thte heck out of the house. And for the lady that was attacked, you deserve all the money you want. And I praise you for your good attitude towards life still. May god be with you. <33
