Not on My Watch!

I loved this story from today's Daily Mail - thanks Emma for sending it through to me. Some chimps at Chester Zoo 'escaped' causing the zoo to be evacuated. Now, as someone who is near-professional in this area (ah, my day as a zoo keeper, happy times) I can assure you, this wouldn't have happened on my watch. Zoo keepers of Britain: toughen up!

Note: when you read the story, it's clear there's some tabloid scaremongering going on. the chimps didn't actually make it out of their enclosure, just into a holding pen. My favourite quote:

'At no time did we have chimpanzees running amok in the zoo.'

Shame- I bet it would have been entertaining. As long as they were in a good mood.....
