Connecticut Won’t Press Charges Against Chimp Owner


State prosecutors have decided not to press criminal charges against Sandra Herold, the a Connecticut woman whose pet chimpanzee, Travis, ate the face off her friend Charla Nash this summer, on the grounds that Travis “had not previously exhibited violent behavior” especially toward Nash, “with whom he interacted regularly.” Charla Nash and her family don’t feel exactly the same way, unsurprisingly. They’ve filed a $50 million suit against Herold. [ABC News]
