Submission + - Chimp found plotting against zoo guests 1

rjshirts writes: In further proof that Planet of the Apes is coming to pass, researchers in Stockholm, Sweden have definitive proof that primates can plan ahead.
From the article: "Santino the chimpanzee's anti-social behavior stunned both visitors and keepers at the Furuvik Zoo but fascinated researchers because it was so carefully prepared.
According to a report in the journal Current Biology, the 31-year-old alpha male started building his weapons cache in the morning before the zoo opened, collecting rocks and knocking out disks from concrete boulders inside his enclosure. He waited until around midday before he unleashed a "hailstorm" of rocks against visitors, the study said."
I think this explains a lot of Cowboy Neal's behavior.......
