    I saw this earlier, though cute I think it`s just a stunt. It`s the kind of thing that you wouldn`t see in a western zoo.

    Pause at 0:53 and you`ll see a less pretty picture.

    The subtitles read "It`s not difficult as he a;ready knows how to hold the bottle. I just teach him to hold it and stay with the cub."

    In the background, you can see that the chimpanzee is chained to the platform on a short chain.

    But I`m sure it`s a great hit with customers at the zoo.

    If it had been a free choice by the chimp, I might have considered it a "beautiful moment of compassion". Or maybe foolishness, since it won`t be long until the tiger is big enough to consider the chimp food-sized.

    But a chimp performing a straightforward task they were trained to do to attract customers to a zoo? Not "a beautiful moment of compassion" to me.

    Someone does not understand the words "compassion" "prey" and predator." I have never seen a monkey kill a tiger.

    Angilion - the chain is probably only used at certain times, nothing wrong with that, very few people complain when they see a dog, horse, cow, rabbit, ferret etc on a lead or tied up. Animals need to be restrained sometimes.

    @Angilion

    Have you SEEN a baby chimp at a zoo?

    Like a sugar-hyped 5 year-old with ADHD and manic Schizophrenia; they needed him in a specific location, and not climbing everywhere like a-- well, like a chimpanzee.

    And the scene directly following it, Momo brings the cub in an embrace, an action all humans and primates recognize.

    So, once a gain: Angilion, Just... Shhhh

    Ah, my pet fool is still following me. Good boy!

    I realise that "train" and "chain" sound very similar, but get someone to explain the difference to you.

    "Ah, my pet fool is still following me. Good boy!"

    Ah very clever aren`t you?
    Very mature.

    Your second sentence was not intelligible enough to be seen as a response. I have been going to the site long before I became a member, I have seen all of your little childish bickering on "controversial" issues, and I know your mentality well enough.

    You will not win this farce of an argument, just as you haven`t won hardly any in the past. So, stop commenting.

    I refuse to respond to any other comments on this post from you, showing that I am a superior intellectual. So I bid you a good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.

    So much cuteness from two animals who in another time and place may very well rip your face off.

    He`ll be back. He`s too attached to me, in a creepy kind of way. My insults won`t keep him away for long.
