Breakout bid

Officials of the US Department of Agriculture have given the Los Angeles Zoo one year to make its gorilla enclosures safe, following a string of escapes. Jim, a 160-kilo, 12-year-old gorilla, jumped out of his enclosure last summer and roamed the zoo for six hours. Evelyn, a female, holds the record for break-outs, having escaped seven times in the past 20 years.
