Default Oh No, Silverback is being booted!

Dad's getting booted!

DALLAS (AP) -- There will be no rose ceremony for a 430-pound bachelor gorilla that failed to form any meaningful relationships with fellow apes during an 18-year stay at the Dallas Zoo.

John, the 63-year-old Western lowland gorilla known for being gregarious with zoo staff and the public, while being ambivalent toward his female counterparts, has been handed his walking papers. The silverback will be transferred to the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia, S.C. where he'll be allowed more solitude, according to a statement issued Monday by the Dallas Zoo.

"It's become clear that he prefers to live a solitary life," said Dr. Lynn Kramer, head veterinarian at the Dallas Zoo. "This move will allow John to continue to thrive while creating an opportunity for our four remaining males to form a cohesive bachelor group."

John was born at the Bronx Zoo in New York City in April 1950, but maternal neglect forced him to be moved to the Toronto Zoo where he was hand-raised with another male his own age. Both gorillas arrived in Dallas at age 5 and were integrated into a small troop of one silverback and two females, before being removed to form a bachelor group together.

Despite his affability with humans and his popularity in zoo presentations about gorillas, zoo officials said John's reaction toward female apes has ranged from indifference to aggression.

No move date was announced for John, a gorilla Kramer described as extremely intelligent and adept at using tools. A two-day bon-voyage celebration at the Dallas Zoo will be held Saturday and Sunday.

John's departure will leave the Dallas Zoo with six gorillas.

I have always thought that females were over rated.

If we have a real viable alternative we would hunt them.

In Life, you reap what you sow.

Whether it's the Golden rule, Laws of Karma or whatevah............!

Maybe I should just say that yer painting with a broad brush and that's not real life, John.

Men have an Eternity of learning to do when it comes to women.

....that's all men..... every swingin' dick.

Same goes in reverse.
