Money-mad Monkeys

Sun, 27th Aug 2000

Six lucky Norwegian chimpanzees at a zoo in Copenhagen inherited 40,600 pounds this week ! The chimps, called Jimmy, Trunte, Fifi, Trine, Grine and Gigi, were left the cash in the will of an 83 year old women. A spokesman for the zoo said that the money would be used to improve the chimpanzees facilities ! Apparently, despite only being chimpanzees, they behaved a lot better than the dead widow’s relatives when the will was read out in court.
