Texas Gorilla Getting Therapy For Being Sexist


1. Everyone’s got some baggage, including Patrick, the Dallas Zoo’s 430-pound female-hating gorilla.

3. After biting and sneering at the zoo’s lady gorillas, 23-year-old bachelor Patrick will be moved to the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, S.C., who are known for helping gorillas with behavioral problems.

5. Though fine interacting with humans, the Western lowland gorilla generally disliked other gorillas and resisted breeding attempts. “It’s become clear that he prefers to live a solitary life,” said Dr. Lynn Kramer, head veterinarian at the Dallas Zoo.

7. Up until now the ornery New York-born gorilla has been living in his own habitat, where he hasn’t had to interact with the other animals and can walk around naked all he wants.

9. Zoo officials said they repeatedly tried to socialize Patrick, whose only friend was Jabari, a gorilla who was killed by Dallas police after a 2004 escape where he injured three people.

11. The zoo will host goodbye celebrations for Patrick this week, and wasted no time finding a high-profile replacement for him: The two new males they’ve acquired from the Calgary Zoo include YouTube star Zola, the breakdancing gorilla.
