The woman identified as Adie Timmermans, who is a Belgium citizen. She used to visit the zoo every week and spend time with the 38-year-old chimpanzee called Chita. However, he was enclosed in a glass case. The duo used to communicate with each other from opposite sides of the glass and also used to blow kisses at each other.


“I love that animal and he loves me. I haven’t got anything else. Why do they want to take that away,” Timmermans said. “We’re having an affair, I’ll just say.”

She had been visiting the zoo for four years before the authorities had noticed about their love affair and decided to take action against the woman by banning her.

On the other hand, the zoo administration believes that their love affair was causing a hindrance for Chita in developing a relationship with the other chimpanzees in the zoo.

According to the zoo statement, “When Chita is constantly busy with visitors, the other monkeys ignore him and don’t consider him part of the group, even though that is important. He then sits on his own outside of visiting hours.”
