Fifteen ninja monkeys on trees
Evil scientists, beware! Cages, plodding henchmen ...er, "graduate students" and even seventeen-feet tall electrified fence are match for ... the ninja monkeys:
A group of 15 monkeys at Kyoto University's primate research institute in Aichi Prefecture, which are the focus of a string of high-profile scientific studies, escaped from their forest home which is encased by a 17ft high electric fence.
The monkeys made their bid for freedom by using tree branches to fling themselves one by one over the high voltage electric fence located nearly three metres away.
The ninja monkeys are invincible ... well ... except for one teeny tiny weakness:
However, despite the intelligence shown in their great escape, the primates appeared unsure as to what to do with their newfound freedom: the monkeys remained by the gates of the research centre and were lured back into captivity by scientists armed with peanuts.
