"It got grandma," one onlooker said.

Members of the crowd laughed as the a grey-haired woman in a wheelchair turned toward a camera as the chimp's excrement hung from her nose.

The viral video received more than 1 million views and Mitchell encouraged viewers to donate in support of John Ball Zoo and its conservation efforts.

"The sharing of this video aims to shed light on the importance of not taunting/teasing animals residing in zoo habitats," he wrote. "Zoo staff would like to keep animals as calm and comfortable in their habitats as possible. It is critical to not tap on glass, shout at the animals, or attempt to feed them."
