Chimp Terror Continues

News of the first post-Travis skirmish in the war between humans and chimpanzees: A 31-year-old chimpanzee at the Furuvik zoo in Sweden has been found to be stockpiling stones overnight to throw at his human gawkers in the daytime. It turns out, this is an important scientific discovery, as Santino “may be the first animal to exhibit an unambiguous ability to plan for the future, a behavior many scientists argue is unique to humans.” According to one scientist, “Many apes throw objects, but the novelty with Santino is that he makes caches of these missiles while he is fully calm and only throws them much later on.”
