Chimp Makes High-Wire Getaway in Japan

Every chimp has its day. Earlier today, male chimp Chacha made his escape from Sendai’s Yagiyama Zoological park in Japan. The brave chimp used his instincts to climb up power lines to avoid authorities. Chacha reacted violently to being shot with the dart gun (who wouldn’t?), but then drifted off to sleep and fell into the arms of a rescuer. We’re happy to see this resolve without any injuries.
