"The Ape Who Went to College" on My Wild Affair airs Wednesday at 7 pm

This is the incredible story of Chantek, the orangutan raised as a human child on an American university campus during the 70s and 80s. Taught to speak in sign language, he is now living among his own kind at Zoo Atlanta, although he describes himself as an “orangutan person.”

My Wild Affair "The Ape that Went to College" airs on Wednesday, July 22nd at 7 pm on channels 3 and 3-1.
