A yet-to-be-identified-gorilla at the London Zoo (or Zoological Society of London if brevity isn’t your thing) broke out of his enclosure today by literally hurling himself repeatedly at the glass enclosure until he broke through it.

According to The Standard, Jonny Briers, 22, told them:

“We were at the gorilla enclosure and the gorilla charged at the glass. It didn’t break it, we saw it do it earlier in the day as well.

And then we started to leave and we heard the siren go off. Then we saw zookeepers running and they told us to go inside. We went into the aquarium and they locked the doors.

We were in there for about half an hour to 45 minutes. We didn’t know what was happening. A zookeeper kept us calm and said it was an animal escape siren.”
