Remember the great llama chase last year in Arizona? Monday morning, Baton Rouge had a similar situation on its hands…but with two precocious lemurs!
Two lemurs reportedly made a mid-morning escape from their enclosures at the BREC Baton Rouge Zoo. Animal control was dispatched to return the escape artists to their habitats.
Guests at the zoo were escorted to the kitchen of the zoo's restaurant and were later transported to the gift shop. No new guests were permitted to enter the zoo while the lemurs were on the loose.
After a brief foray in the treetops of the zoo, the lemurs were finally apprehended and returned to their enclosure. We are interviewing zoo officials and will provide more details soon, including mugshots of the two little ring-tailed criminals.
