How Maurice Temerlin raised the animal brings ethics into question. He and his wife raised a chimp named Lucy (from the time the chimp was two days old) as if she were simply a member of their family, to see whether such an environment would encourage her to model "human" behavior. He states in the Preface to this 1975 book, "Removed from her mother shortly after birth, Lucy was taken into our home and raised as much as possible as though she were a human being. From birth to maturity she never saw another chimpanzee, so that she could learn whatever she learned only from human beings.

Maury, like many caretakers of primates, insists on calling Lucy his daughter. Most of such quasi-parents keep their charges in cages and use cattle prods or other devices to keep them in line.
