In the 1970s PG Tips ran a series of very successful tv adverts featuring chimpanzees. One of these was Choppers. She is now a greying, lonely and broken 42-year-old chimp who has needed rehabilitation to help her learn to become a chimp again because she had become too humanised whilst making money for PG Tips, a tea company.
Choppers now lives at Twycross Zoo in England. Recently her chimp companion Louis, who had spent all his 37 years with Choppers, died, leaving her sad and bereft.
However, despite all the care and love given by the staff at Twycross to repair this traumatised chimp, Unilever, who own PG Tips, refuses to pay anything towards Choppers' care.
Choppers was used in advertising over a number of years to make a great deal of money for the tea manufacturers, but now that she needs help they want nothing to do with her.
You can read about Choppers and her difficult life in the following articles -
As an animal lover I would ask all fellow animal lovers to join with me in demanding that Unilever donate a generous sum of money to Twycross Zoo, so that Choppers can continue to receive the care and help she needs for the remainder of her life.
Thank you for caring and signing.
