Zoo Wants Chimpanzee To Stop Smoking Cigarettes

POSTED: 10:43 am CDT April 22, 2005

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.

A zoo official said Charlie "acts like a naughty schoolboy" and hides his cigarettes when workers are around.

There is a bar around here that had a chimp outside. I think someone thankfully stepped in and had him removed. Patrons were giving him beer and cigarettes. My real estate agent showed me when I was househunting here years ago.

I was new, and I can't quite remember where it was. Somewhere near Loveland perhaps.

It was outside a bar or pony keg on the Little Miami River.
