59-year-old Dying Chimpanzee Refused To Eat Until Her Ex-caretaker Jan Van Hoof paid her a visit

59 year old chimpanzee named Mama refused to eat until her ex-caretaker Jan Van Hoof paid her a visit. Mama, the chimpanzee who lived in the colony of Royal Burgers Zoo in Arnhem, the Netherlands, had been taken care by Van Hoof since the foundation of the colony in 1972.



 

It was April 2016. It took Mama a while before she became aware of Jan’s presence. Her reaction was extremely touching and heartbreaking. This has been described in “Chimpanzee Politics” by Frans de Waal, who studied the colony since 1974.
