Another exhibited animal escape

Published 05/19/08

A 10-year-old Bornean orangutan escaped from her new exhibit at Busch Gardens for nearly an hour Saturday before she was recaptured. Luna Bella, who weighs about 85 pounds, climbed up the outside edge of a visitor viewing window in the park's new Jungala exhibit and then onto the roof of the exhibit. Born Free USA united with API keeps a log of exhibited animal incidents, which are more common than one might expect.
