Do Apes grieve ?

April 28, 2010

Are people really asking such questions today? Hav’nt they watched any wildlife progs for the last 30 years ?

I  remember as a teenager on a family outing to Windsor Safari Park and walking around a wall  only  to be faced by a family of chimps in a closed lonely exhibit room.They all turned their heads together in a spiritless defeated way that sickened me. As if we had dumped a human family in a glass box and never talked to them and never let them out ever again.I hate the whole concept of Zoos now. Deeply embarassed  to have seen those chimps and ashamed that I just walked away.

Our social and emotional sophistication is  not anywhere near the difference that our logical linear mind has achieved as compared to the chimps ( and if there is any difference  ).
