ROYAL, Neb. – Three chimpanzees from a small-town zoo were shot and killed after they escaped from their enclosure and could not be captured, the zoo director said.
The primates at Zoo Nebraska were able to get out of the cage Saturday when a padlock was not completely closed after cleaning, said zoo director Ken Schlueter Jr. He killed the animals with a deputy’s service revolver after a tranquilizer gun didn’t show any effect.
And I thought the PSNI were bad for firing warning shots at the chimp in Belfast!
