Really interesting (and sad) Radiolab story on human/animal interactions.

Lucy from Radiolab on Vimeo.

Here are a few pictures of Lucy, a chimpanze raised exclusively with humans in the 1970's. She was able to sign her thoughts about life, take care of a pet cat and drink a gin and tonic, yet eventually got too strong and wild to be domesticated. What happens next is fascinating and haunting. If you are interested, listen to the free podcast on Radiolab (and listen to other ones too--they are all brilliant).
