Three Gorillas Escape Zoo Exhibit

Posted: Updated:

St. Paul, MN-It was quite a morning at a Minnesota zoo after three gorillas escaped from their exhibit.

It happened just before 10 a.m. Thursday at the Como Zoo in Saint Paul. Zoo officials say the gorillas escaped their indoor enclosure through an unsecured door.

Within 20 minutes, two of those animals were brought back to their exhibit, but one gorilla managed to wander around for nearly an hour.

Zoo officials say the incident never posed a threat to zoo visitors.

However, as a pre-caution, visitors were ushered into safe areas.
