Kansas City Zoo officials have confirmed with 41 Action News that there are chimpanzees on the loose.
Zoo Spokesperson Julie Neermeiyer says the chimps are in the zoo, in a behind-the-scenes area. It’s unclear at this time how many chimps are on the loose. They are working to determine how they may have escaped.
Zoo visitors have been taken indoors for protection. The zoo has closed for the evening.
Is it just me, or is there something amusing about the humans being locked up while the chimpanzees roam about?
