On Tuesday, the Cle Elum City Council passed a proclamation to make the Cle Elum Seven honorary citizens of the city. The Daily Record published a story about this, which was picked up by the Associated Press earlier today.
This afternoon Gary Chittim from King 5, who was here the day the chimps arrived, came out today to see how the Cle Elum Seven are doing a year later.
The story will be on the news tonight – tune in!
King 5 also has a new blog called Pet Dish, and Katherine Sather wrote about the proclamation today on that blog.
