Moe the chimp celebrates reunion with owners at SoCal shelter
CALIENTE, Calif. - Puckering his lips for a kiss and leaping in his cage, Moe the Chimp celebrated the latest reunion with his owners, who raised the chimpanzee for more than 30 years before authorities banned the primate from their home.
"When we made eye contact, the charge was on," LaDonna Davis said. "There was no stopping anything, and the big chimp came around from behind me and pushed me into my husband. The male came around from behind and chomped off my thumb. ... My husband must have realized we were in deep trouble because he pushed me backward. At that time, they both went for him."
St. James Davis, 62, lost all the fingers from both hands, an eye, part of his nose, cheek, lips and part of his buttocks in the ferocious attack, his wife said over the weekend on NBC's "Today Show." She also said one of his feet was mutilated. A Kern County Sheriff's commander also said his genitals were mauled.
