As someone who is also around 46 years old and in declining health, I have to wonder if there was anything the zookeepers could have done to help improve this ape's health. Like sign her up for Pilates or CrossFit?

The pandemic has led many of us to become sedentary, but euthanasia seems pretty drastic. I'm willing to give up my Doritos if the alternative is death.

Evelyn was loose for about an hour and 15 minutes, and during her adventure, she "poked flowers, swatted at butterflies, played hide and seek with anxious zoo keepers and even went for a stroll to see orangutans, giraffes and elephants,'' as the Los Angeles Times reported back then.

There's just something so ineffably sad about this.  She was free for barely an hour from the cage where she spent her entire life.  Yeah, I'm sure the habitat she was in is nice, but it's still a cage.

Damn r.i.p. great ape

Poor thing...
but I had to get a laugh out of the description of the previous "escape". Sounds like the gorilla had a nice time until they shot her with a tranquilizer dart...

She eventually wandered into a men's room, felt the effects of the dart, and was returned to her habitat. No one was hurt.


I'm surprised I didn't hear about a GOP member freaking out about that when it happened.

Even though that's gotta be staged, that's still pretty damn good.

Ya know what? My mistake. I thought whoever photoshopped it missed the flowers. Don't mind me, I'm blind as a bat apparently.

Aw ... 'bye, Evelyn.

I spent way too long trying to figure out what you were looking at.

But if you're human you get to spend the next 5 years confined to a bed, shiatting and drooling on your self, while being terrified in your brief moments of clarity, until you finally die naturally, as God intended.
A merciful death is only for animals, not you.
Because Jesus.

Guess it would have been inhumane to just take it somewhere and let it be free?

Starvation is generally considered an inhumane death.

Well, you had me squinting at the boxes trying to figure out what was wrong for like 9 minutes, so...
