Baboons break out of Paris zoo enclosure

    2018-January-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

IT was bananas!

Dozens of baboons escaped from an enclosure at the largest zoo in Paris on Friday, sparking a shutdown and a wild chase that saw cops scrambling to wrangle the pesky primates.

At least 52 of the monkeys went ape — breaking free and running amok near a large rock structure at the Paris Zoological Park, according to the French newspaper Le Parisien.

Zoo officials evacuated the 36-acre (14.58-hectare) park and called in cops with tranquilizer guns, who weren’t monkeying around as they rounded up the out-of-control escapees.

“Our colleagues have them surrounded,” an officer told Le Parisien newspaper.

“They can be dangerous. They mustn’t get out of the park,” the officer warned.

A vet working at the zoo first noticed the animal jailbreak at around noon when she spotted a baboon scampering near a service corridor used by park employees.

She called up zoo officials, who frantically evacuated visitors, noting that the sneaky simians can be dangerous when “stressed,” said The Guardian newspaper.

Zoo officials still have no clue how the animals escaped.

The primates have been known to attack humans when they feel threatened, zoo officials warned.

“Baboons are large and potentially very aggressive,” a zoo official said.

Police officers used nets to catch the runaways, nabbing 48 of the critters by Friday evening. The remaining four monkeys were returned to their enclosure in the early hours of Saturday.
