Chimp trade: Rescued ape in new home

A secret network of wildlife traffickers selling baby chimpanzees has been exposed by a year-long BBC News investigation. The tiny animals are seized from the wild and sold as pets.

A raid on premises in Abidjan, Ivory Coast's largest city, led to the rescue of a two-month-old chimp. That baby has now found a new home at a zoo, where he is being slowly introduced to other chimps.
