On the lighter side of things this morning , when we get news from the Washington Post, by Samantha Schmidt, that, ” Using a surprising amount of strategy, three baboons escaped while a fourth appears to have gotten cold feet and turned back. Here’s how it all went down.”

 

“All of the baboons were captured within 20 to 30 minutes of leaving the enclosure. Veterinary staff attended to the three that managed to briefly escape, and “the baboons are doing well,” the release stated. The baboons were not used in any infectious disease research, according to a news release, and the animal capture team wore protective equipment for the safety of the animals.”

An “animal perimeter breach” is how the Texas Biomedical Research Institute described the events of Monday in a statement. But the exploits of four baboons Saturday were nothing short of a daring escape to freedom, is how Samantha explained it.
