Chimpanzee robby to continue living with ringmaster

Where is the best place for a circus chimpanzee that has practically only grown up among humans in its last years of life?? The higher administrative court of lower saxony has ruled on this issue.

Chimpanzee robby had spent more than four decades in a small circus – and that’s where he should stay, ruled the court in luneburg. Robby is probably the last ape in a circus in germany.

"I am happy that i can keep my child," said its owner, circus director klaus kohler, immediately after the court’s decision. According to his information, the monkey is 47, the court assumed that he is 43 years old. In any case, robby is an old monkey, even in captivity, very few chimpanzees live to be old. Kohler went to court against a decision by the district of celle that robby should be sent to a sanctuary specializing in the rehabilitation of great apes.
