“Sexist” Gorilla Kicked Out Of Zoo, Sent To Therapy

No, this is not from The Onion

(NY Daily News) A “sexist” male gorilla at Dallas Zoo is being evicted and sent for therapy after he bit one female companion and belittled others.

Patrick — a 430-pound Western lowland born at New York’s Bronx Zoo in 1990 — will be moved to Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, S.C., according to ABC 27.

It’s hoped that his new bachelor pad at the resort known for helping primates with behavior problems will bring out his softer side.

The UK Metro reports that Patrick actually sneered at female gorillas, to go along with the belittling. He’s apparently not very social with other gorillas, but likes people, and is very popular at the zoo. But, he sneered at female gorillas, so, eviction, relocation, and therapy for Patrick.

    You have got to be kidding me. It just gets worse and worse, no signs of it ever being normal around here again.
    I rode horses as a youth. There were some horses who were bullies and some who appeared to like being pushed around. It’s the ANIMAL KINGDOM you idiots.
