Chimp Attack Victim Shows Her Face On “Oprah”

In February, 56-year-old Charla Nash was severely mauled by a 200-pound chimpanzee. Today, she appears on “Oprah” to talk for the first time about the ordeal that left her tragically disfigured. The chimp, Travis, was highly domesticated; he had appeared on TV commercials, enjoyed a diet of lobster, steak, and ice cream, and brushed his teeth with a Water Pik. But for unknown reasons, he suddenly viciously attacked Nash, a friend of his owner. After the incident, Travis was shot dead, but Nash lost her eyes, nose, lips, and hands. Although she remains in the hospital, she talked about her life after the attack. “I don’t ask a whole lot about my injuries. I know that I have my forehead,” she tells Oprah on today’s show. A clip is here, but it’s very graphic. You’ve been warned. [Oprah]
