Vegas Chimp Escapes Again

Just a month after wreaking havoc in a Las Vegas neighborhood, a pet chimp escaped again, police said Saturday. Law enforcement cornered the creature around 5:30 p.m. local time Saturday and captured her after using tranquilizer darts. The primate last escaped July 12 and went ape through her owners’ neighborhood, a spree that ended when police shot and killed her mate Buddy. No more second chances for the banana-loving recidivist this time, however, officials said—CJ the chimp has reportedly been turned over to a local zoo.
