Retired chimp has baby at Chimp Haven; paternity tests being done

Retired chimp has baby at Chimp Haven; paternity tests being done

Video High
It's both a surprise and a whodunit.

At Caddo Parish's Chimp Haven, where retired male chimpanzees all get vasectomies, a female chimp has turned up pregnant.

Chimp Haven managers knew something was up when they could not find one of their chimps last week. Teresa, who's been at Chimp Haven for the past year and a half, was nowhere to be found during the morning rounds. Later that morning, she appeared with a newborn chimpanzee in her arms.

"Well, we were all just a little bit surprised when we heard the news," Chimp Haven's Linda Brent said.

Obviously, one vasectomy did not take.

Teresa was in a group with 17 other chimpanzees -- seven of them males. So now Chimp Haven will have to determine paternity.

"We're going to be doing a paternity test, just like you would do on people," Brent said.

Workers have started collecting hair samples from the chimps for testing. Once they identify the father, it's back to the operating room.

The baby chimpanzee has been named Tracy and she and her mother are doing fine.

Teresa, who is in her 40s, has already had 10 other offspring before retiring to Chimp Haven. This is her first in 13 years.

It's also the first chimpanzee born at the sanctuary -- although officials there hope there will be no more accidents.

Teresa and her daughter will not be separated. Chimp Haven supporter Bill Robinson is sponsoring her so she can spend her life with her mother at the sanctuary.

So the 64,000 dollar question, who from the OT has been to Loiusiana lately? Shane?, FTL? Jay? Kamil?
