A 200-pound chimpanzee shot and killed by police after he mauled a woman last week has been cremated. Eileen Donofrio, office manager of All Pets Crematory in Stamford, says Travis the chimp was cremated Wednesday morning.

Charla Nash was critically injured Feb. 16 when she was attacked by the chimp, owned by her friend, Sandra Herold of Stamford.

Herold asked Nash to come over the day of the attack to help lure Travis back into her house. Herold has theorized that the chimp attacked to protect her.

Nash is being treated at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.

Police have not said if they will file charges against Herold.
