a chimpanzee escaped from a zoo in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Eventually, he got tired and wanted to go home

Ukrainian citizens were treated to some much-needed comedic relief on Monday when volunteers helped an escaped chimpanzee don a yellow raincoat and rode it back to its abode on a bicycle.

The pesky primate named Chichi was seen wandering the streets of Kharkov in northeastern Ukraine after escaping from the city’s zoo, Feldman Ecopark.

He tore through the city center, which has endured some of the most brutal bombing raids by Russian forces of the war to date, before being tracked down by zoo workers.

Bystanders feared workers would struggle to round up the powerful animal, but the potentially dangerous situation was quickly defused when a woman sat down next to Chichi and took off her bright yellow raincoat.

The zoo worker draped the coat around the chimpanzee’s shoulders and helped him maneuver his arms gently into the sleeves, as if preparing a child for the school run when it started to rain.

Moments later, she helped the chimpanzee climb onto a bicycle, which the workers rode back through the streets to the delight of passers-by before Chichi returned to his enclosure.

Zoo director Oleksiy Grigoriev said the animal was returned safely.
