Mastiff Raises Orphaned Chimpanzee

Two years ago in a Russian zoo a female chimpanzee for some reson repudiated and abandoned her baby chimpanzee. When one of the employees of the zoo took the little chimpanzee home it never crossed her mind that her dog, a mastiff, would become a mother for the orphan chimpanzee and treat the cute little baby as her own child. The chimp also gets along with the rest of the zookeeper's dogs, however, the mastiff and her seem to be like peas and carrots.

    I really don’t think this is as sweet as the pictures may make it seem. It was not long ago that a woman in the US had her face and hands eaten off by a chimp that was raised in captivity. We need to be wiser about considering wild animals pets and allowing them to be raised among domesticated animals. There is a HUGE difference between the two, and even the most knowledgable owner can underestimate the power of these magnificent primates. I’m not saying I disapprove of the life-saving effort, I applaud that, I just hope the chimp is given proper perameters and respect when it gets older and is not put in a position to possibly harm or be harmed in the future.
