'I'd Like to See What I Look Like'

'I'd like to see what I look like': Blinded chimp attack victim Charla Nash speaks about new face she received in transplant
Ms Nash had her hair ripped out by 200lb chimp BEFORE she was mauled
Lost her hands, nose, lips and eyelids in attack

Chimp 'allowed to drink wine and slept in bed with owner'

A woman who had a face transplant after she was badly disfigured and blinded by a rampaging chimpanzee said that she would like to be able to see her own reflection.

Charla Nash, a 58-year-old single mother from Stamford, Connecticut, almost died after the mauling three years ago.
Her friend's pet, a 14-year-old male ape, tore off her hands, nose, lips and eyelids and left her blind.

Speaking at a rehabilitation center outside Boston, she said she focuses on one day at a time and is glad to have survived.

Ms Nash told WABC this week: 'I wouldn't mind seeing what I look like.'
In an emotional and candid interview, she revealed that she had been attacked by Travis the chimp before the near-fatal attack took place.



Ms Nash had avoided the 200-pound creature after it ripped hair from the back of her head.
The single mother also revealed that she thought the relationship that her friend Sandra Herrold had with the primate was incredibly strange. Ms Herrold died in 2010.

Ms Nash said Travis ate well and was allowed to drink wine by Ms Herrold, who treated the chimp like a 'companion'. The primate also allegedly slept in the bed with its owner which Ms Nash said was 'bizarre'.

She had been helping Ms Herrold lure her pet chimp Travis inside when the 200-pound animal ripped off her face.
On a harrowing 911 call, Ms Herrold can be heard screaming that the chimp was 'eating her'. The animal was later shot and killed by police.
At the time, Ms Herrold speculated the pet was trying to protect her and didn't recognise Ms Nash because she had changed her hairstyle.

Re: 'I'd Like to See What I Look Like'

When are people going to learn, how the hell do you keep a full grown chimp as a pet and not expect it to go nuts from time to time and who the fuck is going to stop it, you would have thought that the owner would have done some research about animal behaviour... silly humans.
I wish the best for the victim I also feel sorry for the chimp for having a moron for a keeper, poor chimp.

Something tells me she really doesn't want to see what she looks like.

Keeping chimps is moronic and people should fine well know it these days. I feel sorry for the lady though and best of luck to her future.

Chimpanzees are WILD animals. Not pets. Why are people so fucking stupid?
