Silverback gorilla Kumbuka, who is 18, escaped from his enclosure after smashing through glass.
It was loose for 25 minutes before being shot with a tranquilizer.
The gorilla sparked a major emergency at London Zoo after breaking out of its enclosure. Members of the public and staff at the zoo were locked into buildings and ordered not to leave certain areas after the primate escaped.
Reports suggest the gorilla had been attempting to break out of the enclosure earlier the same day, throwing itself against the window of the enclosure. Staff armed with tranquilizer darts roamed the zoo looking for the animal, before it was eventually recaptured.
