Chimps Wear Blankets After Boiler Breaks At Sanctuary

Chimps were left shivering in blankets after their boiler packed in during the freezing weather.

Bosses at an animal centre near Swansea gave them the throws in a bid to keep them warm after the heaters broke down.

The monkeys felt the arctic chill as they waited for the £115,000 biomass boiler to be repaired.

So keepers at the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary, in Abercrave, gave them blankets.

Graham Garen, who runs the centre, said: "Warmth is key for the animals. They might get flu or pneumonia otherwise.
