Netherlands: Bokito the gorilla behind bars again

May 19, 2007 15:48

A 180-kilogram gorilla that ran amok in a Rotterdam zoo was back in his enclosure and on view to the public Saturday, while a woman he dragged along a path and bit a day earlier remained hospitalized recovering from her injuries. On Friday, Bokito apparently leapt over a moat surrounding the zoo's gorilla enclosure and clambered onto a path at the zoo, which was packed with visitors during a long weekend in the Netherlands. Bokito grabbed a woman, dragged her with him briefly and bit her before barging into a restaurant.
