    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.
