Apparently he died or a monkey like him died, I saw it on the noon news this how ignorant people can get. And I don't see this as funny but sad.

Article I surfed on the topic


Charlie The Smoking Chimp Dies At South Africa Zoo

A chimpanzee once hooked on smoking by visitors offering it cigarettes has died at a South African zoo at the relatively advanced age of 52, officials said on Wednesday.

"He appears to have died of old age," said municipal spokesman Qondile Khedama. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.

"Charlie the smoking chimp" used to put two fingers to his mouth to mimic smoking and reach out with his other hand to bum cigarette butts from visitors at Bloemfontein Zoo. But when videos of him puffing away circulated globally a few years ago, zoo officials moved to cut off the supply of smokes.

The nickname stuck even though the cigarette habit faded.

Cute.  But that poor little chimp may have just died of cancer.

Yes the monkey most likely suffered for years before he died
