Santa Ana Zoo: We Don't Lick Monkey Butt Like They Do In China
Junior, no more Kung Pao chicken for you
Here's a tasty story for our readers to chew on:
Gawker has linked to an article about a Zoo in China where a baby leaf monkey named Francois accidentally ate a peanut thrown into its cage. Employees noticed the tiny primate had become dangerously constipated.
Not wanting to use dangerous laxatives on the youngling, they allegedly sought a more . . . creative solution.
In a move, no doubt arousing to zoophiliacs, one brave employee named Zhang Bangsheng washed the monkey's bottom in warm water and proceeded to lick its b-hole. He dutifully lapped at the monkey for an hour, when lo and behold, the little legume popped out, according to the article.
A chuckling Yamaguchi told us this is one of the strangest questions he's received, though he added that the Chinese zoo employee's actions aren't without logic.
