“Ella, look at the little Orangutan. Oh, he’s a good climber. Look at him climb that pole. Oh my goodness, he got out!”
And thats the story of when we were evacuated from the L.A. Zoo
(I am very sad to report that while we were with these friends at the zoo, we were looking at the tiger when this happened, so we didn’t get to see it. We only received a curt “we are evacuating the zoo” due to a “situation” from an employee not long after.)
Not surprisingly, Blue has now decided he’d like to be a zookeeper when he grows up. He thinks chasing runaway orangutans around a zoo sounds like fun.
