I was born June 20, 1985, at the Coulston Foundation to my mother Roxy and father Mack. I was taken from my mother after two days and was assigned to a biomedical research study when I was just 20 months old. When I was just three years old, I was used in a research protocol in which I was anesthetized and had my blood drawn weekly for 40 weeks.
In 2002, I was rescued by Save the Chimps. They found me living in a dismal building they dubbed “The Dungeon” with my only friend, CJ. Today CJ and I are living in a large family group called Freddy’s family, free to roam about a three-acre hilly island complete with a covered bridge! Despite my years of harsh treatment, I am a friendly, outgoing chimp who loves to have my belly tickled.
