Comparative Tests On A Human And A Chimpanzee Infant Of Approximately The Same Age

Another title, this time of a film, which does just what it says on the tin. We are told that the human infant and the chimpanzee infant were "reared together in a strictly human environment for a period of 9 months" and given comparable treatment (including being punished) as if they were in the same human family. All well and good no doubt - I assume the child's parents were the scientists. But what happened to the chimpanzee in the end? And what happened to the child? I can't think that this is a story with a very happy ending.
