A dozy zoo keeper at Hai Keif Zoo in Israel has some questions to answer after 5 monkeys escaped their cage. He accidentally left the spider monkeys door ajar and of course, monkeys being monkeys, they weren’t going to miss out on a splendid opportunity for a run around.
One monkey in particular got out of the zoo completely and went for a wander around the town of Rishon LeZion, a suburb of Tel Aviv.

The police were called in, and after a brief search, the culprit was found in a street adjacent to the zoo. His escapade came to a quick end after being spotted, with a local veterinarian tranquillising the escapee and swiftly returning him to his cage.
