    HMMMMMM  poor guy, deserves a decent burial.  But then again we in NA sometimes even FREEZE dry our furry animals and keep them as door openers.  I have never yearned to have me stuffed pet laying on the fireplace hearth.   Let alone stuffed sitting on a branch perhaps with a fag in his mouth burning away like an eternal flame?  

     

    weird in my mind.

        My awwwwwww was not 'awesome awwwwww'  but  oh the poor little chimp (or big one)  living his 52 years mimicing the people and their smoking.  The article goes on about how people just tossed the cigs to the chimp and he smoked them.

        like a bear I saw as a little kid, drinking a coke, and was addicted to it.  in a roadside zoo before they became obsolete in favour of proper (if they ever are proper) zoos.

        Man never ceases to amaze me how we seem to want to make everything just like us.  (I used to smoke eons ago)  and so I do say ewwwwwwww  but did mean awwwwww poor thing.
