The Hartford Courant reports:
A chimp attacked and killed a Sierra Leone man who was driving Americans to a wildlife refuge Sunday. Another man lost part of his hand in the attack.
Some news reports said a group of up to 20 chimps that had broken out of their enclosures gang-attacked the men, while other stories have pinned responsibility on one animal, possibly a chimp named Bruno, the undisputed alpha male of the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The powerful ape reportedly punched out a window of the taxicab the men were in and assaulted the driver, Issu Kanu, before attacking the passengers.
"This thing was on a rampage, and it acted like it wanted to kill every one of us," Gary Brown, one of the Americans in the cab, told an Austin, Texas, TV station recently. "And it had hatred in its eyes."
Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!
