Why do monkeys smoke

It is precisely the human behavior of animals that we can enjoy ourselves delightfully - the Internet bears testimony to this every day. It is hardly surprising that animals not only use our noble character traits. Humans are addicts, so why not animals too?

For example, the newest attraction at a North Korean zoo is a chimpanzee with a deeply human flaw - he's a smoker. The 19-year-old chimpanzee Azalea smokes one box a day, according to officials at the Pyongyang zoo, not without pride.

Azalea could light her cigarettes herself with a lighter, but the officials denied that she would also inhale the smoke. Probably also to appease any animal rights activists. The zoo has already been criticized for cruelty to animals.

The audience doesn't seem to have any major animal rights concerns anyway. When the chimpanzee made herself comfortable with a cigarette in her mouth, the visitors laughed loudly. It is undisputed that the animal did not teach itself its human flaw, but was trained to do so. So the trainer seemed to him Guardian according to encouraging his protégé to smoke - as well as a little dance.

Thousands of visitors pass through the zoo in Pyongyang every day. It is part of a program of the dictator Kim Jong-Un, for which he had several leisure centers built around the North Korean capital.

Another attraction is the dog pavilion, where animals perform small tricks. You can see a monkey playing basketball or a pigeon that lands on a woman while she is skating across a stage.
