Window Seat


LOOK, it’s perfectly fine to be enamoured with the wonders of nature when visiting a zoo, but clearly some visitors can make their affections felt a little too deeply by the residents.

That was certainly the case for a 38-year-old Belgian woman who developed such a close bond with a chimpanzee that the zoo banned her from entry.

Antwerp Zoo made the call after Adie Zimmerman’s regular visits to see Chita the chimp had caused him to curtail his bonding with fellow primates.

“I love that animal and he loves me,” Zimmerman said in a recent interview, adding “we’re having an affair, other visitors are allowed to make contact, so why not me?”.

The Travel Daily team can think of...thousands of reasons.
