Chimp Throws Orange, Hits Kid



Zoo workers gave primates a smorgasbord of sweet treats for a Christmas treat this week.

What do you get a caged primate for Christmas? Well, take oranges off the list, at least for one chimp at Tampa's Lowry Park zoo.

Zoo workers gave primates a smorgasbord of sweet treats for a Christmas treat this week. Seconds after the zoo attendants dumped oranges into the primate habitat, a chimp grabbed one of the oranges and tossed it into the crowd of onlookers.

The orange hit a little girl in the head who had been watching. Zoo employees rushed to help the girl and called for an ice pack. But the child seemed more stunned than injured, and even stayed at the zoo after getting hit.
