Welcome To The Bitchery


We need to set aside our differences because the monkeys are joining forces.

An ingenious chimpanzee fashioned a ladder out of a tree limb to break out of an enclosure at the Kansas City Zoo on Thursday afternoon - and then convinced six other chimps to bolt with her, zoo officials said.

The great escape began about 4 p.m. after the ringleader was able to break a roughly 6-foot limb from a tree and use it to climb to the top of the outdoor enclosure wall, zoo spokeswoman Julie Neemeyer.


"That chimp then enticed six other chimps to join the first chimp," Neemeyer said.

The chimpanzees never left the immediate area of the zoo's Africa section and they were quickly surrounded by zoo staff in enclosed vehicles, Neemeyer said.

Sure, it didn't work this time. THIS TIME. But we all know what's coming.


And at that point, our only hope will be the vampiric demonic drama llama. But that's a cure that's worse than the disease.
