A Gorilla at Ramsgate



News-Commentary, Drollery


Animal Development, Zoology, Animal Behaviour

    Discusses news of an assault in Ramsgate on the wife of Paul B Du Chaillu. Believes that Du Chaillu will 'laugh' to see that local magistrates have 'fined' rather than 'flogged' 'the brutal gorilla' who attacked his wife, but suggests that the creature should be sent to Richard Owen 'for safety's sake'.
