Lab chimps go outside for the first time - video

Lab chimps who have lived their lives in a concrete room with a skylight at the top for most of their lives finally see the outside world. After decades in an experiment laboratory, this is the first step of the chimpanzees to freedom.

Translation....

Man Narrator
They hugged each other, like they would say they were finally free. And then they laughed.

One imagines being locked up for 30 years in an elevator, then to open the door with friends and say "I don't believe it." They have only seen people wearing protective clothing; they have never had regular contact. They never learned to climb, because they were brought to the laboratory as babies. Now they can finally get out.

Woman Narrator
Most of the former 38 monkeys have spent the entire lives behind bars. Since 2002, they are now in an Austrian village, being prepared a life of freedom. This moment was unique for both animal and people.

Man Narrator
I saw a chimpanzee, who was starring completely fascinated at a butterfly. He knew it, from back when he was a small chimpanzee in the jungle, and now he can see them again.

Woman Narrator
And the monkeys that were born in the laboratory are discovering everything for the first time. The air, the grass, the freedom.
