This is no life for a chimpanzee – there is a chain around her neck, and she is too thin. Her name is Leila, and she was living on a private park called Granja-por-de-Sol, in Huambo, Angola.

John Grobler saw the four-and-a-half-year-old chimp and decided to help her. Grobler, a Namibian Journalist, started asking the local people about Leila.

He found out that Leila had been living at the park since she was a baby.

Many people believe her mother was killed for bushmeat. At first, Leila was living in a cage, but after she had destroyed the cage, she was chained outside to a tree.
