A description of the experience
The Romeo Error – Lyall Watson
Rosalia Abreu, the first person ever to breed chimpanzees in captivity, tells of an incident that occurred on the death of a female in her collection. At the moment that this chimp died in an indoor area, her mate who was outside in the park, began to scream.
"He continued to scream, looking about as though he saw something" and later, when another chimp died he did the same thing.
"He screamed and screamed and screamed. And he kept looking and looking with lower lip hanging down, as if he saw something that we could not see. His scream was different from anything I have heard at other times. It made my flesh creep.
