Two Orangutans Recaptured After Escaping From Zoos

Two orangutans are safely back in their cages after escaping from enclosures at two different zoos across the country.

At Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida, part of a new exhibit is closed after a 10-year-old female orangutan escaped by climbing the exhibit’s windows. Caretakers had to coax it into a back area using apples, carrots and vanilla ice cream for about an hour.

Meanwhile, 3,000 visitors at the Los Angeles Zoo were forced to head for the exit when a 29-year-old orangutan named Bruno punched a hole through mesh that surrounds his habitat.

Authorities say he was free for about 20 minutes until a handler saw him in a holding area behind the cage. Keepers quickly approached the orangutan and sedated him.

Bruno never made it into the zoo’s public area and zoo officials say “he was never aggressive.”

I see a Disney film.  Two Orangutans who fell in love in the jungle try and meet in the midwest when they are sent to zoos a continent apart.  Title?  Orangutan, OranguCAN.

Just send checks directly to me.
