Some gorilla ended up attacking a helicopter over the golden gate...

At least he didn't wind up in a research lab. His end days were probably good.

Such a sad picture of Oliver, with a chain around his neck.

Rest In Peace, Oliver.

Oliver's life is on You Tube, it is a 6 part
documentary that is very interesting. I wish
I could have seen him.
I am so glad that he had good people to take
care of him in his last years.
