Visitors to Belfast Zoo were left "petrified" after a chimpanzee escaped from their enclosure, using a branch as an improvised ladder.

Footage posted on social media shows a chimpanzee on a path with members of the public, while several other chimpanzees remained on the enclosure wall.

While some of the chimpanzees stayed on top of the wall, another chose to explore the grounds.

She said they "could not believe it" when the "smart" chimpanzees started to climb out of the enclosure, and when they went to take a closer look, they ended up "a foot" away from one of them.

She said she was happy the incident had ended well for her family.

"It may have been a different story if it had been aggressive but it absolutely wasn't".

Il lui faudra cependant trouver un moyen de séduire la jeunesse, alors que près de 70 % de la population algérienne a moins de 30 ans.

That's what happened in Belfast Zoo on Saturday, when the zoo's chimps finally worked out how to escape their enclosure and then spent a while roaming the zoo at large.

Last month, an endangered red panda cub escaped from Belfast Zoo.It was eventually found in a residential garden a short distance from the zoo. "We just walked past it and it was absolutely grand". "Had it been me I'd have run for the hills".

A spokeswoman said: 'Zookeepers were present as the chimpanzee quickly returned from an adjacent wall to the rest of the group inside the enclosure'.

He explained: "They're intelligent primates and know they're not supposed to be out of their enclosure, so got back in themselves".

Mr Cairns told the British broadcaster that the zoo will review the design of the enclosure, and may have to remove the trees, although they do not want to do so.

However, the zoo's chimpanzees were "quite cowardly" and later returned to the enclosure on their own.
