When Dorothy, a well respected chimp at a nature preserve in Cameroon, died recently, the handlers decided to bury her. In the process, this stunning photograph was taken.

“I cannot emphasise enough how silent and still they were. Chimpanzees are typically not like that. They are loud, with short attention spans. It was unbelievably emotional. We were all struck.”

“Her name was Dorothy.” “Her name was Dorothy”. “Her name was Dorothy”.

“Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, hers was the most… simian.”

what kind of fence is that…and why is the woman holding the chimps head if it is dead?

Maybe the other chimps assume that the humans killed her, and are parading her corpse in front of them as a warning that they could be next.
