Chimpanzees overthrow, kill and then eat their tyrannical leader

• arclein

Scientists still aren't sure why the chimps exhibited such strange and disturbing behaviour, and finding out may help show why few animals apart from humans show such deadly aggression and help answer questions about why chimps are going extinct. It's likely that man-made environmental changes have disrupted the chimp's environment and led them to be upset, and competition for a mate and a power struggle with younger chimps might also be responsible for his death.
