Chimpanzee suffers from smoking addiction
Updated: 2005-08-25 17:15

A 26-year-old female chimpanzee named Aiai smokes at Qinling Zoo in Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi province, August 23, 2005. The chimpanzee began smoking in 1989 after her first mate died. Following the deaths of her second mate in 1997 and one of her offspring, and the transfer of another offspring to a different zoo, she began to smoke more heavily. Zoo authorities announced on August 23 that they planned to help her stop smoking through several measures, such as finding a male chimpanzee for her. [newsphoto]
