Have You Seen Our Monkey?

In Life on September 21, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

A baboon escaped from the Brno zoo! On Wednesday it got out of its cage, and yesterday it ran away from the zoo. About two dozen zoo employees and twenty cops were chasing it, but tough luck – the monkey was smarter than the average cop. Last night the hunters gave up at around nine p.m. and the chase started this morning again.

The baboon should be running around Brno Medlanky Airport, which is basically a landing stripe [?] for the smallest planes that get licenses in this country [ultralights].

And one ironic aspect? The director of the zoo is to be sacked by the city government but he keeps telling the councillors that everything is okay in the zoo. As the matter of fact, as my colleague Tereza Strnadova wrote in her article today, he was saying the same thing yesterday, as the baboon was already out of the cage.
