dailystar.co.uk – By Dimitris Kouimtsidis – A chimpanzee whose romance with a human visitor was ended in scandal is said to be “doing well” – after the woman was banned from seeing him. In August last year, Adie Timmermans claims she was forbidden by staff at Antwerp Zoo, in Belgium, from visiting her favourite chimp Chita, whom she “loved”.
The woman claimed that both she and 38-year-old Chita would be distraught if they were not allowed to see each other any more. She said at the time: “I love that animal and he loves me. I haven’t got anything else. Why do they want to take that away?”
