Oct. 21: Zoo Worker Bit by Gorilla
A female zookeeper at the Calgary Zoo was working outside a gorilla’s cage when she was bitten on the finger by the ape. She’s getting medical treatment. The zoo has had several problems with workers and its lowland gorilla exhibit. For example, two workers were disciplined after they left a door open, allowing six gorillas to escape into a kitchen. Another worker had previously been fired for a similar incident.
