The Thanksgiving Feast
All week we've been giving thanks for the people and organizations that make this sanctuary possible. Yesterday, it was all about the chimps. Which means that here at the sanctuary, it was all about the food. You know who likes food? This guy. He somehow managed to hold six baked apples in his hands while he vacuumed up everything else with his mouth. I've never seen him concentrate this hard on anything before. Burrito wasn't the only one who enjoyed the Thanksgiving party. You'll have to watch the video at the end of this post to see what Negra had to do to get this treat bag. All I can say is that it was very un-Negra like. But as you can see from her expression, it was well worth the effort. Foxie was joined by this little black-haired troll during the forage. After lunch, they went for a stroll on the hill together (if you don't see the troll, look closely for some hair that seems out of place). There was no Thanksgiving food coma for Missy. Once the sun came out, she hit the hill to get some exercise. Many thanks to Patti, Sandra, and Katie for volunteering to help the chimps on the holiday, and to Patti and Denice for preparing the feast. As you'll see, it was quite a hit:
Watch what five years of sanctuary means to seven chimpanzees.
