NEW ORLEANS — After two unexpected pregnancies at a sanctuary for retired research chimpanzees, other females have been put on birth control and the males are getting another round of vasectomies.

-snip-

The birth was definitely a surprise. Every male gets a vasectomy before being sent to Chimp Haven because there's a surplus of captive chimpanzees.

"All the males in the group have been vasectomized. Two of them have been vasectomized twice," Brent said.

To avoid pregnancy, SPAY; not neuter.

Besides, I thought that only Dem women could be vasectomized.

Chimp Haven? At tax payer expense? Or private donations?
And how much does it cost for a chimp vasectomy?
Have we collectively lost it?
Can’t we just teach them to practice safe sex? sarc/

The joke about Fluke is that she should be hired as an animal contraception expert at the zoo. First she’ll tell the female animals, I’ll get you free contraceptive pills so they won’t have to neuter you. Then I’ll get you govt free cheese, better housing, unemployment, and I’ll even lend you my boyfriend for a night.

However, I did see someone from Planned Parenthood lurking around the zoo with a hedge shears.

Anyone see the humor in this.....”After two unexpected pregnancies at a sanctuary for retired research chimpanzees, other females have been put on birth control and the males are getting another round of vasectomies.

Chimps are intelligent animals so they were going to teach them how to practice safe sex. Condoms would have been cheaper than vasectomies.

So they brought the condoms and bananas to demonstrate how to use the comdoms, but the chimps ate the bananas before they had a chance to demonstrate.

No, but they sure look like the DUmmies.

[I apologize to any chimpanzees who may have been offended by the above comparison.]
