					Charla Nash is the victim of a highly publicized attack by Travis the Chimp, a
chimpanzee. She appears November 11th on Oprah Winfrey. Chimp victim “doesn’t
recall attack” unfortunately which makes the Oprah interview less compelling, but you
can see the video below when available right after the show airs.

Read details of Charla Nash’s life below, see her photos, and see the Oprah interview on
video when it is posted publicly. We will have it right after the show.


As a biography Charla Nash is a 56 year old woman born November 10th, 1953. She was
living in Stamford Connecticut when attacked by Travis the Chimp on February 16 2009.

The incident left her blinded with horrific facial lacerations. At 210 pounds the chimp
was the size of a large man. It ripped off her nose and hands, and caused other significant
damage to her face.

The chimps owner named Sandy Herold was her friend. She stabbed the chimp
repeatedly with a kitchen knife, and he was soon after shot be police who arrived on the
scene.

While in the hospital Charla Nash battled for her life. A team of specialists worked
tireless to save her and pieced together what they could of her extremities. A trust fund
was set up for her benefit in which the public donated money to her situation.

She tells Oprah that she has no memory of the attack. All she remembers is waking up
from a coma in the hospital to hear that she was mauled by a chimpanzee. At least that is
what she tells Oprah Winfrey. Chimp victim doesn’t recall attack? Wow!
