DALLAS - The scene at the Wilds of Africa exhibit was wilder than anything
most zookeepers have witnessed in the jungle: A 300-pound gorilla breaks
out of its enclosure and goes on a 40-minute rampage through a forest,
snatching up a toddler with his teeth and attacking three other people
before being shot by officers.

Federal regulators are investigating the Dallas Zoo over Thursday's
escape, zoo officials are trying to figure out how the gorilla managed to
break out, and animal welfare advocates are questioning whether officers
had to kill the beast.
