From zoo to academia: Students at Al-Quds University in the Gaza Strip were surprised to see an unusual guest at their lecture room on Saturday – a chimpanzee who had escaped from a nearby zoo, Palestinian news agency Maan reported.
University sources said the chimp entered the lecture hall through a window left open and even listened to the lecture.
One of the university workers told the French news agency, "We were very surprised to see the chimpanzee who escaped from the zoo right next to us. It entered the university lecture hall and jumped into the meeting room. It caused shock, but also surprise, among the students."
According to reports in Gaza, some of the university's female students screamed as they spotted the ape in the room.
The chimp will not be able to take any courses, however, after being captured by zoo workers with the help of the campus' security officers and returned to its cage.
