WASHINGTON -- A Connecticut
chimpanzee attack has sparked lawmakers and the Humane Society of the United States to renew calls for passing the Captive Primate Safety Act.

The chimp, which was being kept as a pet at a woman’s home, was shot and killed by police after is brutally attacked a Connecticut resident.

U.S. Reps. Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon, and Mark Kirk, R-Illinois, along with the Humane Society, lead the call for the legislation, which would prohibit interstate commerce in primates for the pet trade, making it illegal for individuals to buy or transport a pet primate across state lines. It would have no impact on zoos or research.
Chimps are vicious animals in the wild and are not only cannibals they are also known to kill and eat there own young,But they a really cute,
Will teach her to keep a an animal out of it's natural domain. Who the hell has a chimp as a pet, does she have a rainforest as her garden??

No sympathy!
chimpanze that.
That's made a bit of a monkey of them
awwww they're my fave animal, they're sooooooo cute.
as others have said, shouldn't have been kept as a house pet.
Giving us chimps a bad name.
