Who was Travis the chimpanzee?

"Travis (October 21, 1995 – February 16, 2009) was a male common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) who appeared in American television shows and commercials. In February 2009, Travis and his owner Sandra Herold gained international notoriety after he suddenly attacked Herold's friend Charla Nash and grievously mauled her, blinding her while severing her nose, ears, and both hands, and severely lacerating her face. He was subsequently shot dead on the arrival of the police, after trying to attack an officer."

Fun fact: My (the blogger) boyfriend's name is Travis. He's a hairy dude and gets mad easily.This made me *lol*

This is why you 
1) don't take any species out of their habitat. What if someone just took you out into the jungle and made you live there? Just watch i'm a celebrity, get me out of here!
2)Pharmaceuticals are bad.
3)Everything is because he was overweight? Nice fat shaming. Fat people don't rip off people's faces.It was because this poor chimp was forced to do things he didn't want to do, taken away from his family and put on drugs.
