Zookeepers say a gaggle of chimpanzees used branches weakened by a storm to make a ladder and escape from their enclosure on the Belfast Zoo.
Video filmed Saturday by guests to the Northern Eire zoo confirmed a number of primates scaling a wall and perching atop it, with one strolling down a path exterior the enclosure.
Zookeeper Alyn Cairns stated bushes within the chimps’ enclosure had been weakened by current storms, permitting the animals to interrupt them and style a ladder to flee.
He instructed the BBC “they’re clever primates and know they’re not alleged to be out of their enclosure, so received again in themselves.”
Two weeks in the past a uncommon crimson panda escaped from the identical zoo when its electrical fences failed. The animal was recaptured within the driveway of a close-by home.
