Chimp sanctuary in La. announces: It's a girl!
Wednesday - 8/15/2012, 3:42pm EDT
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 42-year-old chimpanzee whose unexpected pregnancy was discovered in February has given birth to a healthy girl.
Ginger gave birth Monday at the Chimp Haven sanctuary for retired research chimpanzees. Ginger's pregnancy was a surprise because every male must get a vasectomy before coming to the sanctuary in northwest Louisiana.
Since February, every male in a group with a female and still interested in breeding has been given a newer type of vasectomy. And every female is on birth control.
The baby has not yet been named. Sanctuary officials say a donor who pays $13,000-a-year to support the chimp can name the baby. If that doesn't happen, the sanctuary will take suggestions from the public.
