The Calgary Zoo had to deal with some monkey business Friday morning, when several (perhaps hungry?) gorillas managed to make their way into a kitchen.

According to a press release from the zoo, a number of gorillas were found in a kitchen space, which is usually off limits to the animals, shortly after 9 a.m. The kitchen is also designed to be a secondary gorilla holding area, but in this case only members of the staff should have had access to the facility.

Emergency response teams arrived on scene withing minutes, said the zoo, and began to secure the perimeter to the Rainforest Building while a gorilla keeper cornered one remaining gorilla in the kitchen.

One keeper suffered minor injuries in the incident and is being treated.

At no point was the public at risk, nor did any gorillas enter a non-secure area, the zoo confirmed. Crews are investigating how the gorillas got into the kitchen.

  • A gorilla tries to grab with his mouth a tree banch that he put on his neck at the Los Angeles Zoo in Los Angeles, California August 12, 2011. The Los Angeles City Council voted today to pursue plans leading to a possible privatization of the zoo, an idea described by its chief advocate as ``the only model'' available to the cash-strapped city if it wishes to keep the attraction open. City officials say the change would save nearly $20 million over the next five years but opponents of the plan question the savings and warn that privatization could mean steeper ticket prices for the zoo's 1.5 million annual visitors and less transparency when it comes to animal welfare.

Port Lympne has welcomed a host of new arrivals this year with wildebeest, colobus monkeys, gorillas and rhinos all adding to the current stock. Port Lympne and Howletts Wild Animal parks were set up by the late John Aspinall to protect and breed rare and endangered species and, where possible, return them to safe areas in the wild. The Aspinall Foundation which runs the parks also manages two gorilla rescue and rehabilitation projects in the central African countries of Gabon and Congo where they have successfully reintroduced over 50 gorillas to the wild.
