The wife of one of the Gombe national park workers brought her daughter and new baby to visit their father. They happened upon Frodo on a walking path, and he grabbed the baby out of the daughter's hands. He climbed to the top of a tree and started eating it like he would a monkey (I believe it was already dead). They didn't euthanize Frodo because: 1) monkeys and their young are common prey for chimpanzees, so Frodo probably thought the baby was a monkey; and 2) the wife ignored all warnings to never bring young babies to the reserve.
