More Details in South African Chimpanzee Attack

Recent reports are giving more (and sometimes different) details about the US grad student attacked at a primate sanctuary in South Africa. One source quotes the student's sister as saying he lost an arm in the attack, but his uncle denies this. 

American student has surgery after savage attack by chimps -

"Two male chimps grabbed Oberle and tried to drag him under the fence, but were not able to yank him into their enclosure.

Cussons said he estimates the attack lasted 15 minutes.

At some point, people tried to stop the chimps, and Cussons shot two rounds in the air to see if that might get them to retreat, he said. One of the chimps then charged at Cussons, he said. Cussons shot that chimp in the abdomen"
