Police were called after the creature 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, which gave it space to escape. The baboon was found in a nearby shoe shop, where zoo keepers caught it with a net and a plastic cage.
