London Zoo’s escaped gorilla drank undiluted blackcurrant squash after freedom, says report

Kumbuka, the gorilla who escaped from London Zoo a week ago today, helped himself to five litres of UNDILUTED blackcurrant squash, a report says.

Professor David Field, who wrote the report, confirmed there was little to no danger during the incident.

“There were no broken locks, Kumbuka did not smash any windows, he was never ‘on the loose’ and his normal gorilla posturing reported by visitors earlier in the day was unrelated,” the BBC reports he wrote.

Kumbuka “briefly explored the area next door to his den, where he opened and drank five litres of undiluted blackcurrant squash,” the report added.

The animal’s exit was “opportunistic” and occurred due to an unlocked door, the Zoo confirmed.
