As reported in the N Y Daily News, a Russian chimp (Zhora) has been sent to rehab. Sadly the Moscow Zoo visitors are to blame. They snuck the 26 yr. old primate booze and cigarettes in spite of warnings not to. The zoo keepers even kept Zhora behind 3 rows of fences, but still the laughing visitors continued to throw liquor and smokes to the chimp. Eventually Zhora became hooked on the two vices. And soon after his addiction and aggressive behavior became too hard to handle, so Zhora was off to a rehab. No word on if the treatment is working.
