Herold, a widow whose daughter was killed in a car accident several years ago, told the Today Show that the incident was “a freak thing.”
She said Travis “couldn’t have been more my son than if I gave birth to him,” and rejected criticism that chimpanzees are inappropriate pets.
“It’s a horrible thing, but I’m not a horrible person and he’s not a horrible chimp.” she said.
The unexplained attack was uncharacteristic of Travis, a veteran of TV commercials who could eat at the table, drink wine from a stemmed glass, use the toilet, and dress and bathe himself.
Don Mecca, a family friend from Colchester, N.Y., said Herold fed the chimp steak, lobster, ice cream and Italian food.

CensurÃ© deux fois, les bras m’en tombent !1) Pour un commentaire sur l’absence ou prÃ©sence de rog (donc le micro-perti de la dÃ©rogation et et celui de la rogation, c’est logique).2) Pour un commentaire notant cette premiÃ¨re censure.Tout ceci alors que trÃ¨s rÃ©cemment les pires insanitÃ©s racistes ont Ã©tÃ© profÃ©rÃ©es dans une rubrique prÃ©cÃ©dente sans provoquer de rÃ©action particuliÃ¨re.Messieurs les modÃ©rateurs ne vous gÃªnez pas, allez-y de votre troisiÃ¨me coup de ciseau, aussi inepte que les deux premiers.
I love Plain Chicken! (Did you know she’s an Auburn fan?) I actually almost made these this past Sunday for church but instead I made the ones on her blog that are little sausage biscuit cups. I’ll be posting about it soon, too.
