USDA issues scathing inspection report on owners of the Las Vegas chimpanzees
CJ, the Las Vegas chimpanzee owned by Timmi DeRosa, lost her companion chimpanzee, Buddy, to gunfire after both of them escaped from their cages in a residential area on July 12. CJ will be transferred to Chimps Inc, a sanctuary in Oregon. But before Terri decided to turn the chimp over to the sanctuary, USDA inspectors visited the Vegas residential facility where CJ has lived for over ten years. The result was this scathing Inspection Report, which I am providing in its entirety.
