Chimp-on-Dolphin Violence

Longtime readers (obsessive, detail oriented, OCD ones anyway) will remember this post from May of 2009, featuring a photo of a sculpture in Paris's Muséum de l'Histoire Naturelle of an orangutan (or as I like to spell it, "orang-outang") strangling a man while its offspring cheers it on:

It includes a link to a photo of a chimp attacking a dolphin from the Parc de l'Orangerie in Strasbourg, and my lament that I will never find my own photo of said statue. But find it I did!
Click to enlarge! I'm generally pretty displeased with the quality of my photos from those long ago days (1982 in this case) but this one came out pretty well.  And of course you can never have enough pics of chimps attacking dolphins!
