Mrs. Herold sounds as selfish as ever. The focus is always on herself and her loss. Even if she were able to call Charla Nash, Nash may not have ears to hear her with or lips to speak with. We already know Travis ripped her eyes out. There is really no justice for the victim in a case like this. But, I hope Nash is made as comfortable as possible, no matter how poor that leaves Herold.

The monkey should of been at a zoo.. Chimpanzees are vicious wild animals and should not be kept as pets..

The essay by Dr. Jane Goodall in Sunday's paper made a good point. She said that people have a false idea about chimps being lovable and people friendly because they have been featured in so many entertainment venues. They are shown on TV wearing little outfits or in circuses. But they are fully capable of wreaking major damage as that poor woman Charla Nash now realizes. Mrs. Herold should never have been allowed to keep a wild animal as a pet but it is too late for her friend.

What a clueless, selfish woman. More worried about Travis' legacy than her poor "friend". She should keep her mouth shut and dedicate what 's left of her miserable life to helping Nash.

Why on earth would a woman keep a chimp as a pet? Maybe the chimp performed some husbandly duties as well? I wonder if they tested the animal for HIV?
Is that not where HIV came from in the first place?

Come on, you know its true, whats that old saying, you can take the beast out of the jungle, but you cant take the animal out of the beast. Its in the DNA, he will snap for sure. As I always said in my years in the film industry, A2M!!

Husbandly duties? What a sick perverted bastard you are. Is that
what you would do with a pet chimp?

Well other than the chimp was wearing a diaper, Im sure he cleaned up around the house, took out the trash, killed spiders when needed. I am certainly not saying anything was happening in the bedroom, but sometimes a woman gets lonely, and that woman was no looker. So it could be possible, come on you never thought about it? Not even once?

This woman is hinting at suicide. Does anybody care enough to do something about that? She has been through enough, give her a break. Was she right or wrong to keep a chimp as a pet? That doesn't really matter at this point, does it? You can't go back and change history. She has now lost absolutely everything. Have some sympathy.

There's definitely a break from reality here. Just once I'd like to hear her say she may have been wrong in keeping a wild animal as a pet. Just once!
