This orangutan, Luna Bella, was born in the Houston and was raised by human keepers when her inexperienced mother rejected her. She was later placed successfully with a surrogate orangutan mom, but she is highly intelligent, highly socialized to people and very curious. It doesn't strike me as odd that she was the first to point out the design flaws in her new habitat, but she was never a danger to anyone.

Sorry...the previously posted comment was about the female orang who escaped from Tampa's Busch Gardens over the weekend (May 17, 2008). I didn't realize this was an older incident.
