Moscow Zoo to Have TV Sets in Cages

"We want them to pick their noses less and think more instead"
Gorillas in the Moscow zoo will soon watch TV programs, zoo director Vladimir Spitsyn says. He adds that a TV set will be put into the winter cage where a couple of gorillas live. The animals will be able to watch videos about the life of monkeys in the wilderness. Vladimir Spitsyn thinks these programs are important for intellectual progress of anthropoids.

The zoo director says much attention is paid to occupations of the gorillas. "We want them to pick their noses less and think more instead." At that, Vladimir Spitsyn tells that today the gorillas work with special primitive devices for their own development. As similar experience of international zoos shows, watching TV programs improves the psychological condition of animals. A TV set will be put into the cage this summer when the animals spend more time outdoors.
