Poor old Topaz hasn't been the same chimpanzee since her keeper took her for a stroll
Poor old Topaz hasn't been the same chimpanzee since her keeper took her for a stroll around the amusement centre at her home in Belle Vue Zoo, Manchester. Because Topaz decided to chance her luck on a fruit machine - and now she's hooked. Every day she pesters her keepers to take her back to play the one-armed bandit. Maybe it's because for Topaz it really is a fruit machine. The jackpot is an extra helping of bananas and raisins.
