News of the Weird reported in September on Koko, the gorilla
that knows about a thousand words in American Sign Language,
and in February, she was back in the news at her home at the
Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, Calif. Two of Koko's female
handlers filed a sex discrimination and wrongful discharge lawsuit
against the Foundation because its president, Francine Patterson,
had allegedly pressured them to display their breasts to Koko in
order to better "bond" with her. According to the lawsuit,
Patterson herself had been bonding with Koko for quite some time
and thought Koko needed a little variety.
