Wellington Zoo 34

A chimpanzee had ripped another’s ear
off. But now cages came gilded with fit-
for-humans, ear-attachment-no-problem
medical care—to the chagrin of the
ripper, who a fortnight later was still
glowering at such a trespass upon
the colony’s internal workings. He bossed
the ripped-off to a further away perch,
screeching bloodcurdlingly, however not
subtracting body parts, something indeed
shown to be fairly pointless. Resuming
his bitter ruminations he plucked
a turd from his arse and, with an air
of summing up the situation, ate it.
