Chimp Escaped Zoo After Watching Madagascar
The chimpanzee that escaped from a Japanese zoo was trying to replicate events in the movie Madagascar. Chacha the chimp escaped the zoo and climbed up some power lines before being tranquilised, knocked out and brought back "home."
His escape has now revealed to be inspired during a film night held for himself and the other animals every week at the zoo. Films shown to the animals range from classics, to thrillers and occasionally an adult flick. The zookeeper in charge of picking movies for the animals has said that Chacha and his friends were last shown Madagascar.
"It's strange, we had shown them other prison break films such as Escape From Alcatraz and The Shawshank Redemption, but it appears the animals only got the idea once the concept of an escape was placed within the context of a zoo and animals."
Following the screenings, the animals were said to have left feeling relaxed… however Chacha was seen carefully examining the DVD case before scurrying off to his enclosure. The escape has made the zoo question the weekly movie night and what repercussions it could have for the other animals.
