Joe was imprisoned here, in this squalid cage at this decrepit roadside zoo for 17 years. He was confined to a tiny, rusted cage, isolated and alone. Joe was finally released, and with the help of Save the Chimps Sanctuary we were able to take him to his wonderful new home. PETA also helped to retire Lisa Marie and Tarzan from solitary confinement. They were taken to Save the Chips Sanctuary, where they have acres of land to roam, play, and interact with their own kind.
