Two male Chimpanzees that escaped from their cage on July 12 at the National Museum and Monument complex in Jos, Plateau State have been safely returned back to their cage.

According to Plateau News Online, one of the fleeing chimps was since  caught and safely returned to its cage on that same Tuesday July 12th while the other was said to have hid on a tree in a residential area not far from the zoo premises.

According to Plateau News Online which announced the news on July 13th,

“In the early hours of July 12th morning, two chimpanzees escaped from their cage and were harassing passersby at the premises of the Jos National Museum and Monuments. One of the chimps was successfully lured back into its cage while the other escaped running out of the Zoo premises and perching on a tree in a residential area located at west of mines neighborhood not far from the zoo premises. All efforts by the men of the Plateau State Fire Service to capture it alive proof abortive. After 8 hours of trying, one of the firemen climbed the tree and cut down the branch the Chimp was hanging on making it to fall then running into the grove close to the zoo.
But fortunately  a Chimpanzee called ‘Jack’ has been safely lured back to its cage at the zoo.

According to Plateau News, Jack returned to its cage this morning tired and hungry with bruises all over its body including a missing finger nail.
