Chimps made honorary citizens of Wash. town

Cle Elum's City Council took a few minutes for monkey business.

CLE ELUM, Wash. —

Cle Elum's City Council took a few minutes for monkey business.

Or, more accurately, chimp business.

Tuesday night, the council voted to designate seven chimpanzees at a Cle Elum-area sanctuary as honorary citizens of the central Washington town.

The primates arrived a year ago at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, after being used in biomedical research in Pennsylvania.

The Daily Record in Ellensburg reports that the council passed the proclamation unanimously. The proclamation also praises Cle Elum residents for donating food, blankets, toys and their time to support the chimps.
