Chimps use branch to make ladder, escape Belfast Zoo

Chimpanzees have used a branch to escape from their enclosure at Belfast zoo. This is the second breach by animals in recent weeks. The chimps used a branch as a makeshift ladder to scale high walls surrounding their pen on Saturday. A zookeeper said trees in the enclosure had been weakened by the storms, allowing the chimps to break them.

Chimps escape a zoo, Newsvoice mods be like "LET'S APPROVE THIS RIGHT AWAY!" 6 years old boy gets beheaded in Saudi Arabia in front of his mother for being of the wrong kind of Muslim, Newsvoice mods be like "NAH LET'S HOLD THE STORY UNTIL PEOPLE FORGET IT."

Just what they need over there. More sub-humans on the street who can barely problem solve.

The ability of the apes to outsmart a human architect gets way less impressive, when you find out the Zoo was built by Sinn Fein voters.

I don't know (and I'm not an anomal rights softy) but I kind of feel like when an animal is capable of, and motivated to , escape their pen then they shouldn't really be in one. But I understand that there is a complicated issue of "if they live in the wild then humans will simply out compete them and drive them out anyway, and we really can't stop the beautiful complexity of human lives for the sake of far less complex non-human creatures. Just for the record I'd be a vegitarian if it weren't for the fact that soy beans are always less happy and experiential than pigs (to simplify my position massively obviously). If people were to leave nature intact at the expense of population growth then it would be a harder thing to argue, but to be realistic the choice is really between bean farms and animal farms. And at least animals farms can enjoy being 'free range' ect. So I feel that vegans should really be arguing for the most free range farms possible, instead of joyless vegitable farms.

Good they should be in a sanctuary that resembles their original habitat not a zoo.
