Monkey Escapes From Zoo and Falls From Power Lines After Getting Shot With Sedative

At some point or time in our lives weve all made the joke of letting all of the animals in the zoo free in the middle of the night. Hell, Mike Tyson actually offered a zoo attendant $10,000 to open a gorilla exhibit so he could box a hostile primate Which is why the guy will always be one of the greatest in our opinion, but thats another story. Were here today to talk about what could be one of modern day humans distant relatives sneaking out of a public zoo and attempting to become a real life version of Caesar from Planet of the Apes. What you see in the video below might disturb you if youre an animal lover, but if you would like to be entertained by a mini version of the classic movie King Kong watch it!
Ok, so it wasnt as good as King Kong being that this chimpanzee wasnt gripping some hot blonde lady and pounding his chest but that fall was almost just as epic. This particular chimp goes by the name Chacha and he is a 24 year old monkey that escaped from the northern Japanese zoo known as the Sendai Yagiyama Zoological Park. He was strolling the streets and his whereabouts were unknown for nearly two hours before he was spotted atop a residential powerline, climbing the utility poles like trees, and swinging on the power lines like branches. As spectators gathered Chacha began to bare his teeth and become more active, luckily he didnt do anything to brash and stayed high above and out of reach of any of the local residents. In the video, you can see the last moments of the chimps freedom stroll as he was shot by a tranquilizer dart and Chacha angrily tries to take a swing at the man in the mechanical tower once the dart pierced the furry fellows back. Shortly after being shot, we see Chacha take a dramatic plunge towards the ground where he fell into a blanket held up by zoo workers sorta, they kind of missed the target and Chacha fell unto the ground already unconscious.
The zoo officials claim that Chacha was not injured by the fall but from the looks of the video, the chimp probably has a concussion. Honestly, this could have been a lot of worse than what actually occurred in Japan, April 14th. Luckily, he wasnt able to get ahold of anyone, or he wasnt shocked by the power lines. The zoo has yet to even release information as to how the chimp escaped the facility in the first place. One thing we do know is that the Sendai Yagiyama Zoo workers needs to work on their hand-eye coordination.
