FREDDY - CHIMPANZEE (ARRIVED 1995)

In 1995 Austrian Authorities who had found a lone male chimpanzee roaming through a public park contacted Monkey World. They had named him Freddy. He was clearly cold and upset when a local police officer offered Freddy his hand and put him in the back of his car. Freddy was taken to a dog and cat kennel and then Monkey World was called. At the kennels, the staff did what they could to
make Freddy comfortable by giving him an armchair and bedding.  Freddy has been one of the most humanised chimpanzees we have rescued and it took him a long time to feel comfortable in a group of his own kind.
