A gorilla (sorta) escaped his enclosure at the London Zoo


Kumbuka, a male silverback gorilla, escaped from his enclosure into a staff area.

Armed police were called, guests were locked down. Zoo officials say nobody was in any danger.

Kumbuka was tranquilized and taken back to his enclosure. 

[This is] yet another startling reminder of the risks associated with maintaining dangerous wild animals in captivity.
