  • VOA News

Officials in Japan's city of Sendai say they captured an escaped chimpanzee Thursday following a chase along the city's electrical wires. City officials say the male chimp — known as Cha Cha — escaped Thursday from the nearby Yagiyama Zoological Park. The animal had been on the loose for more than an hour before climbing a utility pole, where officials shot the simian with a sedative.
