I found it inspiring to see how this chimpanzee succeeded in dealing with an armed zookeeper.

It raises some important POLITICAL* issues about how we humans fail to respect Apes' rights.

This footage was shot in a Japanese zoo on posted on YouTube by The Guardian newspaper (London, England).

* Just in case someone tries to say that this video doesn't belong on this Forum.

1. Humans fail to respect the rights of all other species.
We feel we have the right to kill and eat any specie we want and to destroy the environment and habitat of all other species sending them into extinction.

Human hubris is sickening.

5. Kind of a no-brainer ain't it?
I wonder what is Japanese for "How are we gonna persuade this chimpanzee to come down from the roof?"
