You may have heard that yesterday afternoon, at around 5pm, a gorilla escaped his enclosure at ZSL London Zoo. During that time, visitors of the zoo were kept inside while the zoo’s vets did what they could to tranquilize Kumbuka the gorilla and return him safely to his den. The Zoo have stated that they are unsure of how the gorilla escaped, but will continue to investigate the matter fully.
We can confirm our gorilla is safe and well after entering a keeper-only area in his exhibit for a short time https://t.co/FrsfQSyyAi

All in all, yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind of a day, what with #Marmitegate sending half the country in panic. After all the madness, what else could we end with than this tweet? Britain is cray. Happy Friday.
