Knoxville Zoo chimps confront wayward raccoon

It's doubtful a wild raccoon expected a big chimp challenge when he wandered through the Knoxville Zoo.

A few days ago, "Downtown" Randall Brown was visiting the zoo with his son, Will White, when they spotted something unexpected in Chimp Ridge.

A raccoon had somehow gotten inside the chimpanzee enclosure, and had been "treed" by the youngest and most inquisitive member of the group, 7-year-old George. While the other chimps looked on from nearby, George grabbed a stick and was trying to poke the raccoon.

Full story here.
