DALLAS, TX – A Texas star is headed for rehab, of sorts.

Patrick, a gorilla at the Dallas Zoo is bound for a South Carolina facility where he will get special attention for an attitude problem with fellow apes.  He apparently lashes out, especially at the ladies.

Zoo peeps say they are sad to see Patrick go. He has been there for 18 years. But this way he can get some help, and the zoo makes room for two new additions, including Zola, a break dancing gorilla who’s become a viral sensation on YouTube.
