"It's hard to say what exactly precipitated this behavior," said Colleen McCann, a primatologist at the Bronx Zoo. "At the end of the day, they are not human and you can't always predict their behavior and how they or any other wild animal will respond when they feel threatened."

You can hardly ever predict what a human will do let alone a chimp.

Call it a freak accident and let everyone off work an hour early.

Chimp Who Mauled Woman Once Bit Another



The same 200-pound chimp who was fatally shot this week after a vicious attack on his owner's friend, leaving her with gruesome bite wounds, also bit a woman in 1996, the woman said in an interview broadcast Thursday.

The woman, Leslie Mostel-Paul, said Travis the chimp bit her hand and tried to pull her into a vehicle as she greeted him. She said she complained to the chimp's owner and to police.
