Zoo gorillas to be given TVs

Moscow Zoo keepers are to fit televisions in the cages of their gorillas in a bid to make them "think more".

Zoo director Vladimir Spitsyn said the gorillas will be able to watch films about the life of monkeys and great apes in the wild among other subjects.

He said that similar projects had shown that by allowing animals to watch television their cognitive abilities improved.

He said: "We want them to spend less time picking their noses and more time thinking about life."

The TVs will be introduced into the gorillas' cages this summer, reports Pravda
