An Ape Pulled a Knife on Another Ape


Yesterday at a zoo in Canada, a gorilla picked up a knife that a zoo employee accidentally left in his cage and appeared to threaten another gorilla with it. He eventually put the knife down and neither animal was injured, but the resulting photograph of the incident, as shown on the Today show this morning, is a stark reminder that violence against one another is something that is innate to our species. HA. Just kidding! The picture of the monkey “monkeying around” with the knife is hilarious! He’s like, “You take-a my banana, I break-a your face.”
