A 29-year-old male orangutan named Bruno escaped from his enclosure at Los Angeles Zoo on Saturday evening after making a hole in the wire fencing.

Bruno roamed free before eventually returning and handing himself in.

“We were worried for a while,” said the Head Ape Keeper, “fortunately Bruno had the good sense to see that he was safer at the zoo and he got back here at the first opportunity.”

“He’s a clever animal!”

“Not that clever, the taxi driver took him the long way around and over charged him by twelve dollars!” said a knowledgeable wolf.
