(ILLEGAL PETS/VIDEO) Kansas City residents went bananas when Sue, a neighbor’s 300-pound pet chimpanzee, got loose in their neighborhood. This recently obtained video recorded last October captures the chimp shoving garbage cans around the street and stamping on the window of a police car. The rampage came to an end when animal control officers shot the ape with a tranquilizer gun.
When people keep wild animals as pets, it’s usually only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Luckily, no one, including Sue the chimp, was injured in this situation. The video shows that Sue was tied with a raw rope around her waist, giving an indication of her life in domestic captivity. While wild animals may look cute and harmless, especially when babies, they aren’t pets. — Global Animal
