A GORILLA has used a palm frond to escape his enclosure at Melbourne Zoo and go walkabout before zookeepers used a bunch of bananas to recapture him.
The zoo said visitors were ushered out of harm's way and into the gift shop near the zoo's entrance until the 20-minute drama was over, just before closing time yesterday.

Yakini, 9, used the frond to climb out of his enclosure and was walking around before keepers lured him into the nearby elephant barn with some bananas, spokeswoman Judith Henke said.

Zoo vets then sedated him with a dart gun.

Ms Henke said no one was hurt during the incident.

"He just went for a walk," she said.

"These are gentle animals and the staff had him under observation."

Ms Henke said Yakini, who was born at the zoo and lives a bachelor life with his father and brother, was monitored by vets as he recovered from the effects of the dart.

"He went into the barn and the next thing he knew he was waking up on a bed of straw in his den," she said.

I'm going to Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney next week .I hope all the animals at Taronga Park stay safetly in their enclosures while we are there!

This is the second time I have heard of this happening lately. A lion escaped at Mogo Zoo on the South Coast not long ago as well.
