Cop Investigated For Feeding Gorillas Pop-Tarts

GORILLA poptartsA police officer in America is under investigation over allegations that last year he snuck into a zoo after hours to feed gorillas Pop-Tarts.

The police officer, who hasn't been identified, was reportedly one of a larger group of people let into Como Zoo in St. Paul, Minneapolis, by two security guards at around 2 a.m. one day last January.

Surveillance cameras caught the officer apparently then trying to feed the snacks to the gorillas, who are named Schroeder, Gordy and Togo. The zoo says that Pop-Tarts are not part of a gorilla's diet.

The zoo says they don't know if the gorillas actually ate the Pop-Tarts, but that the animals do not appear to have suffered any ill-effects from the experience.
