As Japanese reporters descended upon the Ishikawa Zoo we were the only ones to get an interview with the now infamous 42 year old chimpanzee, Ichiro:
Reporter: Mr. Ichiro why did you feel it necessary to stage your rooftop protest?
Ichiro: We animals at the zoo are tired of the conditions. It is just damned hot. We need air conditioning!
Reporter: But a rooftop protest? Even though Japan has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, didn't you know they would bring out the big ones?
Ichiro: Guns, schums...did you see the way I jerked that gun out of that clothes wearing, upright walking, homo sapien's hand? If I had held onto it I would have shot him and everyone else right in the ass. Then it would have been naptime for bonzo!
Reporter: Mr. Ichiro, your protest came to an end when your keeper offered you a banana. Does that mean your terms were met?
Ichiro: No, it just means I disarmed the bad guy and it was time for dinner. I will work on the rest another day.
