Louise and Stephan were being smuggled to Russia. Louise was discovered in a shoebox, which had been sealed and stuffed into the hand luggage. The small Louise had been tranquilized with alcohol. The Chimfunshi board made sure that the two chimpanzees were sent from Moscow to Chimfunshi. Although Louise was relatively healthy, she had difficulties integrating into one of the existing communities, and in the beginning was completely dependent on Sheila. Now she is a happy community member in enclosure 3.
