    Smoking chimpanzee

    BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa -- A South African zoo wants a chimp to go cold turkey.

    The chimpanzee smokes cigarettes. Keepers said Charlie picked up the habit by watching smoking visitors. People toss him the smokes and he puffs away.

    A spokesman at the Bloemfontein Zoo said, "it looks funny to see a chimp smoking" -- but Charlie's trick could cost him his health.

    The zoo is asking people to stop tossing cigarettes and contributing to the chimp's habit.

    There is a really neat petting zoo/animal park where I used to live on the Oregon Coast. I was friends with the owners and would visit whenever I needed a break from the human race. Every evening, the owner would go into the cage and enjoy a smoke with "Sam", the chimp. So far as I know, both are still alive and well. It was quite a sight to see.
