Chimp attack 911 call: ‘He’s ripping her apart’ – CNN.com
…Conklin said the chimp had been acting “rambunctious” earlier, prompting Herold to put Xanax in a cup of tea for him to drink. He did not know if the animal had been prescribed the medicine or if Herold had ever given her pet such a mixture before.

I wonder if chimps get disinhibited with benzos like little kids.  You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a child given just enough Versed to lose their inhibitions and be wide awake, and insane.

  1. I find Ketamine to be utterly superior for pediatric sedation… but you’re right about some kids and benzos.

  2. Ketamine rocks for short-term sedation. I’ve not seen it used over the long term very much. What would a chimp make of the dreams, I wonder?

  3. Veterinarian weighing in…. yeah, it was stupid to give the Xanax. Majorly wrong choice in this situation. Disinhibition BIG TIME.

  4. When you first hear this, you’ll think its hilarious. But when the woman tells 911 operators the primate had “ripped her face off” it gets ugly real quick. If your like me, your laughter turns to inner anguish as you realize your laughing at the tragedy of another person–a real person who just had 4 teams of surgeons operate on her.

  5. this chimp attack must have been nightmarish for that lady; i guess you never know what might put a chimp over the edge
