I'd like to see pics of the doors.  I'm guessing they were left unsecured. Ape used door knob.

Let's do a little math. The zoo keeper has 19 years of experience. The zoo keeper raised the gorilla from birth. The gorilla is 29 years old. How close to Gargantua did the zoo keeper have to travel?

If I was an animal in a zoo I would take every opportunity to injur as many people as I could reach. It would be my only goal.

Somaticasual: rikdanger: Somaticasual: Now, to be fair... If you ARE the gorilla, that's a great day.

That's gaspingly funny.

Yeah, I might have snarked before reading the article about the zookeeper


You have to wonder about what environment the gorilla was in.  Unless he thought of the zookeeper as a competing gorilla, that doesn't seem like a gorilla's behavior in the wild.  All bets are off if the zookeeper was assumed to be competing for mates/turf/bananas.

Every time I walk along the suspension bridge on the Pangani Nature Walk at WDW/AK I do the mental calc of "If he was motivated and ran and jumped with all his might.... I think he might make it."

Fun fact:
All the restroom doors at AK open in rather than out so you can barricade yourself in the the restroom should he make the jump.
