Chimp Charlie dies at 52 despite smoking habit (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/11484057)

For years, zookeepers had been trying to get the chimp to kick the habit, and they discouraged visitors from giving him cigarettes.

But Mr Khedama said he did not believe the addiction had ended Charlie's life prematurely, as he had lived around 10 years longer than the average chimp.
