Airport a Jungle Gym in Moscow Monkey Business

From Reuters

Moscow’s main international airport was severely disrupted when a cargo of monkeys escaped and started using the airport elevators, Radio Moscow reported Sunday.

The radio said a “critical situation” developed at Sheremetyevo Airport after a number of monkeys escaped from their cages, set free all the others and began riding in cargo elevators.

The monkeys, from an East Berlin zoo, set the elevators in motion by accidentally pushing a button. They were later pacified with tranquilizer shots, the radio said.
