Victim Of Chimp Mauling Out Of Coma
A California man mauled by two chimpanzees in March has been brought out of his medically induced coma.
His attorney said 62-year-old Saint James Davis has begun his slow recovery. Davis was attacked by two chimps while he and his wife were visiting their own pet chimp at a wildlife sanctuary near Bakersfield.
Davis was attacked while he and his wife LaDonna were visiting the Animal Haven Ranch outside Bakersfield to celebrate the 39 birthday of their pet monkey Moe.
While the couple was standing outside Moe's cage with a birthday cake, two other chimps escaped and attacked them. They chewed off most of Saint James Davis's face, tore off his foot and attacked his limbs and genitals.
