Orangutan Escapes, Then Changes Mind

From Australia’s Network 10 and BBC News:

Ape escapes, then ‘changes mind’

Sunday, May 10, 2009

An orangutan used a branch to short-circuit a security fence and escape from an Australian zoo, only to change her mind and return to her enclosure.

Karta, a 27-year-old primate, cleared one fence and began piling up debris to scale a wall at Adelaide Zoo.

Visitors who witnessed the escape alerted staff, and the zoo was promptly evacuated and closed for the day.

But Karta spent less than 30 minutes on the loose before apparently thinking better of her escape attempt.

Zoo curator Peter Whitehead told reporters the ape seemed to realise she was in a place where she should not have been.

"She’s actually hung on to the wall and dropped back into the exhibit," he said

Who can blame her?

    Let this be a lesson to all the Obamabots. Don’t try to escape. Just stay in your exhibit. Obammy will take care of you. LOL

    I was kinda thinkin’ the ape found out o-blah-blah (and the mrs.) were out roamin’ around so SHE headed back to where SHE was safe! :-)

    Did anyone check her tree to see if her TV had the gubbamint Digital Box so she could see her Oprah un-interrupted?

  4. Reality Bytes says:

    The ape is as smart as a 5 yr old – or twice as smart as a liberal. Maybe Obama could appoint her Secretary of the Interior. Nah!! She’d never take it. Who wants to work with a bunch of morons anyway?! (the line forms to the right).
