Staff at Wahpeton’s Chahinkapa Zoo are mourning the loss of a white handed gibbon who died of heart failure this week. Director Kathy Diekman told the Wahpeton Daily News that the 43-year-old Jonesy was born in the wild and rescued from his deforested habitat in the early 1970s. He was donated by New York’s Bronx Zoo to Chahinkapa Zoo in 1995.
