This video of "retired" chimpanzees who will finally be able to live out their lives in peace and safety and with dignity is worth countless words. More than 100 chimpanzees will rejoice when they are finally retired at the Chimp Haven sanctuary in Keithville, Louisiana, over the next 12 to 15 months. It's about time.  

Watch this most heartwarming video, allow it to move you deeply, watch it again, and share it widely. Need I say more?

Background information about the agonizingly slow process of "retiring" these chimpanzees can be gotten here (see also and) and some of these amazing beings are named here (see also).
