INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Two of the Indianapolis Zoo's new orangutans are apparently escape artists.
Zoo officials report the apes briefly left their primary enclosure Tuesday before zoo workers lured them back inside.
Spokeswoman Carla Knapp says 9-year-old Rocky and a female named Knobi were out of the enclosure about 30 minutes. Neither made it to areas accessible to visitors, but they managed to dismantle a camera.
Knapp says zoo staff knew where the apes were at all times.
About zoo 60 visitors stayed in a dolphin exhibit during the incident.
Knapp tells The Indianapolis Star the $26 million orangutan exhibit has several safeguards in place to prevent the apes from reaching visitor space.
The exhibit is larger than two NFL football fields and is scheduled to open to the public Memorial Day weekend.
