Chimp Escape Caught On Tape

A chimp at a zoo in Western Japan was so desperate to get out of pen and into the shade that he escaped.

For about two and a half hours Tuesday the chimp named "Ichiro" just stayed in the shade on the roof top of a building.

He was trying to get a little relief from the 92 degree heat.

Workers tried everything to subdue him from a tranquilizer gun to a blow gun to spraying water.

At one point the chimp even took the zoo worker's gun which fortunately fell to the ground out of the animal's reach.

Finally, Ichiro was subdued by a banana.
