China Daily (USA) - - WORLD -

Aba­boon es­caped from a zoo in Ar­gentina on Tues­day and was caught af­ter hid­ing in a shoe shop, his keep­ers said. Po­lice were called af­ter the an­i­mal es­caped from the zoo in Buenos Aires while it was closed to the pub­lic. “The in­ci­dent oc­curred dur­ing feed­ing. The an­i­mal acted un­ex­pect­edly and sur­prised its keeper, who gave it space to es­cape,” the zoo said. The baboon was found in a nearby shoe shop, where zoo keep­ers caught it with a net and a plas­tic cage, it said.
