  • Description

    The residents of Gadsden, Alabama, scanning their local newspaper recently found an item in the classified advertisements which must have reawakened old memories.

    "For Sale .. one miniature gorilla answering to the name of Suzie", it read. For those who could remember the days when King Kong roamed the streets of New York looking for his lost love, it must have sent a shiver up the spine.

    But there was nothing to worry about. Suzie is pretty harmless, unless antagonised. She's a miniature gorilla standing only three foot high (about one metre) and weighing less than 50 pounds (22 kilograms). At present she is living in a local pet shop and the longer she stays there the harder the owner is finding it to let her be sold.

    There have been a number of enquiries following the newspaper ad. One caller said he had checked his lease and although dogs, cats and birds weren't allowed in his apartment, there was no mention of gorillas. So his neighbours may soon be able to relive the King Kong days at the cinema when Suzie climbs to the top of the high rise apartment block for a daily breast beating constitutional.
