Calgary Zoo

More foibles.

A Calgary zookeeper has been suspended for failing to properly secure an outdoor gorilla enclosure, allowing one of the animals to perch on a perimeter fence.

Two young gorillas were in their outdoor habitat on Monday morning before the zoo opened, when Shana, a seven-year-old male, jumped from a pile of ice and reached the perimeter fence, which is made of glass.

He sat on the fence for a few minutes before seeing a staff person and immediately jumped back into the yard, said zoo officials.
