United States If King Kong has taught us anything, it’s that male gorillas do not know how to positively treat the other gender. Sure, climbing a skyscraper while holding a woman seems like a good idea in theory; it’s actually a pretty bad plan. Patrick the gorilla is just like King Kong, but smaller and a jerk. After biting a female gorilla and sneering at others, this Dallas Zoo primate is being sent to South Carolina for therapy. He’ll live comfortably in his own place and bring enjoyment to the crowds that come to visit him. "He's beautiful and smart and everyone loves him," said Laurie Holloway, a spokeswoman for the Dallas Zoo. "We're really sad to see him go but it's for the best for the zoo and for Patrick." His old space will be used to bring in two new gorillas, including Zola, a break-dancing gorilla. This is some serious monkey business.
Tragedy struck the nation last Monday, September 16, as U.S. military veteran Aaron Alexis, 34, opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard.

Now, half a week after France’s initial involvement, the UN has come out in support, and it looks as though the United States might get involved as well.
