Lucy.

Lucy was a chimpanzee raised as a human in the 70s by Dr. Maurice and Jane Temerlin.

I don’t want to give away too much more of Lucy’s story- it is such an interesting, heartbreaking segment… please listen. I heard it a few months back on “This American Life”, and I am still haunted.

An amazing story: THE PARENT TRAP (the Lucy portion is a few minutes in).

Here is a slide show documenting Lucy’s life ……….Click.
