That was sad, sorry Koko.
I still think all monkeys should be shot into space.

And later privately Koko expressed her grief. . .
By masturbating.

@Gerry - I believe it was a convoluted attempt at saying "Look at me, I`m an athiest!"

@Bremir you gotta believe in a soul to claim that another doesn`t have one. imo though, it`s not that you dont have a "soul" it`s just that relatively everyone else are just a bunch of pussies.

Didn`t move me at all.

But, I am getting a little sick and tired of people claiming you have no soul just because you, apparently, don`t cry buckets of tears at every single thing these people got upset from.

Funny thing, the opposite happened to me the other day, my cat`s gorilla got hit by a car and it cried all night and signed very sad things.

Odd.

and Raokin- animals understand death very well, just watch how they deal with it. What is not clear is whether Koko understood that the cat was dead rather than just not coming back. I do not know about higher primates but most animals I know will register a death, spend an amount of time with the corpse and then they understand it is not going to be around and get on with things- in some case that is mourning deeply.

mmmm- I am not a member of PETA,( Greenpeace though) but I most certainly support animal rights. I just would not blow someone up or release shed loads of animals into an unsuitable environment. Kokos story is sad, as is the story of Nim Chimpsky, the fate of many other apes used for unnecessay experoments is worse. As for rabbits and chickens....

"The gorilla knows what death is."

I don`t think this video proves that she really had a concept of what death means. All it shows is that she was sad to be separated from her cat.

but Gerry, caring about animals and being a member of PETA are two vastly different things

One of those is a normal human being
The other is an Eco-terrorist :P

Watched some related Koko videos and wow what a tragic life. Her(?) handlers keep showing her death, questioning it about death. What the hell? Stop it already! Keep the cat in the cage for crying out loud, give the gorilla a break already.

Isobel yes , and i hope they also think different from humans, sometime i think we don`t have nothing good to teach to animals.

"we should definately NOT be teaching them to talk."
Communication is a good way to avoid conflicts.
Besides, they can already "talk", they just don`t talk like humans do.

I`ve seen this before, but it really is moving. Poor Koko. :(

There are other neat videos with her meeting different celebrities too. Quite fascinating.

I saw `Rise of the Planet of the Apes` and we should definately NOT be teaching them to talk.
