Harambe 2: Reports say a gorilla is on the loose in London Zoo

It's happening again...

London Zoo was placed under lockdown on Thursday evening following a gorilla breaking out from its enclosure.

After confirming the breakout at 6pm, London Zoo moved quickly to lock down the zoo, hoping to protect members of the public from the as yet unnamed gorilla.

As visitors to the zoo took to social media to better explain the situation, London Zoo made it known that it is their intention to tranquilize the gorilla, rather than put the animal down.

The public are not believed to be at risk.

At time of writing, some video has emerged of what appears to be animal trainers arriving at the zoo with the intention of apprehending the gorilla.

Less than six months from the passing of Harambe (RIP the meme lord, for he died for our sins and is forever missed), we can only hope and pray another innocent noble gorilla isn't put down.

UPDATE: Metropolitan Police have confirmed that the gorilla has been recaptured after being subdued by a tranquiliser dart.
