!!!!!!!!Conklin told reporters the chimp was acting so agitated earlier that afternoon that Herold gave him the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in some tea.
Is this Xanax a veterinary prescription? If so, then owner/vet KNEW this animal was a problem. If owner was giving him HER xanax then she really is a huge idiot. Either way, owner 100% liable and negligent imho.
Friend guilty of contributing stupidity by coming over to "help" corral the guy. But I don't go so far as to say she got what she deserved. This should be a friendship ender for sure.
Gun? I vote 12g shotgun with #4 buckshot.
