Chimp's Mystery Father Finally Known

The DNA tests results are in at Chimp Haven. 
Conan, a 21-year-old chimpanzee has been identified as the father of the baby born at Chimp Haven in January.
A chimpanzee named Teresa gave birth to little Tracy, but the bigger story was that all of the male chimps were given vasectomies.
Chimp Haven's veterinarian says vasectomy failures are not uncommon.
Conan was one of three males that the Chimp Haven staff thought could be the baby's father.
Tracy is the 11th child for Theresa and at least the third child for Conan.
But Tracy should be Conan's last little one. Chimp Haven says Conan is set for another vasectomy in a few weeks.
