CNN Tracks Down Bubbles, Michael Jackson's Pet Chimp

On Wednesday night, CNN's Anderson Cooper introduced another of the network's hard-hitting reports in the wake of Michael Jackson's death: An exclusive visit with Bubbles, Jackson's infamous pet chimpanzee.

As Cooper notes:

"Jackson parted ways with Bubbles once the chimp got too big and too hard to control. Bubbles was then kept by an animal trainer until 2005 when he was sent to an animal sanctuary in Florida. That's where we caught up with him. Bubbles is now 26 years old."

Among the details gleaned from the report: Jackson never visited Bubbles at the sanctuary, the chimpanzee likes cucumbers and bananas ("of course") and enjoys making faces.
