Travis the Chimp’s Owner Getting Sued for $50 Million


The family of Charla Nash, the woman mauled by Travis the Chimp, is reportedly suing the ape’s owner for $50 million. Apparently they consider it negligent and reckless to raise a wild animal as a person, possibly give it prescription drugs, and call your friend over to help when it gets angry, leaving her without lips, a nose, eyelids, or hands, and potentially blind and brain-damaged from the ensuing attack. We tell ya, these frivolous lawsuits never stop. [NYDN]
