Only going to the zoo is allowed under one condition

Only going to the zoo is allowed under one condition

Weekly meetings included kisses and waves across the pane of glass in the chimpanzee enclosure.

Adie Timmerman’s love for a chimpanzee named Chita has led officials at the Antwerp Zoo in Belgium to ban her from the zoo. In 2021, Adie Timmermans comes to prominence after it is revealed that she has been a regular visitor to the Antwerp Zoo and has become very fond of a chimpanzee, which she has been a regular visitor for four years.

Kisses and waves

The woman claimed that she and Cheetah would be upset if they were no longer allowed to see each other. “I don’t have anything else. Why do you want to take this from me?” Weekly meetings included kisses and waves across the pane of glass in the chimpanzee enclosure. However, zookeepers soon put an end to the lady’s strange activities.

They note that he spends most of the day with the other chimpanzees and it is important that he gets on well with them, but Cheetah does not make friends with the new chimp he is introduced to. She claimed the story resulted in Mrs. Timmermans being banned from the zoo for life. However, the ban was lifted a week later, and the zoo chiefs allowed her back in on the condition that she change her behaviour.

The zoo’s communications director, Ilse Segers, told People Magazine: “We just asked Mrs. Timmermans to change her behavior towards this particular animal. There’s no ban on seeing Chita, including other visitors at the moment. He’s an exception: he grew up at home with people and came to the zoo nearly 30 years ago. He’s still very close to people, but for the sake of his own health, we’ve asked the Timz chermans to stay in the group. To be among the chimpanzees and not stay with him for too long.” And you get his attention. Hopefully, you will do that in the future.”
