    Who cares...they are still nasty, stinky, animals.

    I saw this video on Twitter. Regardless of what you think about chimps - it was a pretty awesome video. He get's so excited and just jumps into the arms with a big hug to the couple who raised him.

    We need more heartwarming stories these days.
    Thanks from BigLeRoy

    It's all happy time until he removes the owners face.

    Or other body parts...

    So are humans if they aren't regularly washed.

    It's not as if humans have never done worse things. It's unfair to ascribe the malevolent behavior of an individual to the entire group.

    So you didn't bother to watch the video I see?

    He's not a full grown chimp btw.

    Can't we just have some feel good stories here something without people crapping all over them?

    Hearing and learning, unfortunately, are two different things.

    These are wild animals, not some downtrodden minority.
