Charlie the chimp, known for his cigarette habit, has died at his home in a South African Zoo. Zoo officials claim that smoking was not a factor in the Charlie's
death, who at 52, lived ten years beyond the normal life expectancy of
the average chimpanzee.
After picking up a smoking habit because of cigarettes being thrown into his enclosure at the Mangaung Zoo in Bloemfontein, South Africa, Charlie began to bum smokes from zoo visitors by gesturing to his mouth with two fingers, mimicking the actions of smokers he'd watched. Following accusations from animal rights activists, officials at Bloemfontein zoo attempted to cut Charlie's nicotine supply off entirely.
