Sex-starved chimp smokes and spits on visitors

A sex-starved female chimp at a zoo in central China has taken to smoking and spitting on visitors.

Thirteen-year-old Feili appears sullen, sleeps all the time and ignores visitors except to pester them for cigarettes.

She rushes to the front of her cage and becomes anxious and impatient when her requests for a cigarette are ignored, reports Eastday.com, quoting Shanghai Daily.

It is thought she started smoking after seeing her keeper having a cigarette break.

She has become such a keen smoker that she spits on guests who fail to offer her a cigarette or a light.

A boy who witnessed Feili spitting at the Zhengzhou Zoo, in Henan Province, said: "A tourist threw a cigarette butt to just outside the cage, she tried to get the butt with a stick."

Zoo director Lui Bing claims the chimpanzee has turned from "a gentle girl" to a "shrew" because her "husband" - now 41 years old - was unable "to meet her sexual demands".

It is reported that all efforts by the authorities to find another partner for her have been rejected by the chimpanzee, who has ended up venting her frustration on tourists.

Mr Bing said: "Feili smokes because of curiosity rather than addiction, and she learned how to spit from badly-behaved visitors. She is a real problem for the zoo."
