Queenie stands on a post at least 20 feet from the ground, stretches her left arm, and firmly catches a piece of watermelon mid-air. She’s a retired research chimpanzee, as are so many of Chimp Haven’s more than 200 residents, and the facility will soon have even more animals calling the Keithville sanctuary home.
