Of course it had to be a pair of Swiss academics who took the fascination for a Swiss favourite passtime – swimming in inner-city-rivers and lakes – to a whole new level: By finding out that apes can be trained to swim (Why wouldn’t they, they can ride a bike and say „Me sad“ in sign language…). Beware of stepping too close to the enclosure’s rim next time you stop by your local zoo: your annoyingly staring face is just a short swim away for Cooper and his friends.
