No, this is NOT a still from the latest Planet of the Apes movie. This is a real-life photo of Cha Cha the chimpanzee who made a break for it in Sendai, Japan. It took police and the Yagiyama Zoological Park staff two hours to track him down. He escaped not only from his own area, but from the entire zoo — and then led authorities on a wild chimp chase through the city. Eventually, they sedated him with a tranquilizer gun and he fell into a blanket on the ground and was not hurt.
There is an investigation underway into just how Cha Cha got out of the park. I know how he got out, from the looks of him he probably opened the door and walked out. Ch Cha does NOT want to be in prison – I mean, a zoo.
