Bob Barker Writes Big Check For Chimp Haven
You know him as the retired host of “The Price is Right” but Bob Barker is a major animal rights activist. Barker has donated nearly 400 thousand dollars to open a new area at Chimp Haven in Southwest Shreveport.
The money will be used to created a space for 5 chimps from a sanctuary that closed in Texas because of overcrowding and lack of money. Other sanctuaries took the rest of the animals, but none would take these 5 because they are infected with the HIV virus. Barker says “I WANT TO SEE THEM START CAVORTING AROUND IN THE WAY THAT THE GOOD LORD INTENDED.”
