A sexist gorilla has been evicted from the Dallas zoo and must now take a turn on the couch for therapy.

Patrick apparently sneered at female gorillas and also bit one of them.

The ape has already been kicked out of two zoos and was brought to the Dallas Zoo to change his ways. Patrick doesn’t have problems with humans, but when he comes to his fellow gorillas, he is apparently sexist.

The zoo says it has tried to cure Patrick but alas they cannot. Patrick has only ever had one friend, another gorilla named Jabari. He was killed after escaping in 2004 and injuring three people. This further exacerbated Patrick’s sexist ways.  Also, Patrick was abandoned by his mother as a baby.
