What a great example of the importance of communication in the work place.

Hopefully the victim makes a full recovery, and the vet goes to the opticians.

It must have been a darn good gorilla suit to have fooled the vet. I can only imagine how stooopid! he/she would be feeling. :blush:

I hope the fellow who got needled will be alright.

News Flash! Finally proof! A Bigfoot was tranquilized at a Spanish Zoo today and the body has been taken to a hospital for examination. We are waiting outside the hospital for a press conference where we will finally get to the bottom of what thousands of witnesses are seeing in the woodlands of the world.

Update -

A Spanish zoo has denied that one of its keepers was wearing a gorilla suit when mistakenly shot with a tranquilliser dart by veterinary staff.

It also says "But he has made a full recovery and is already back at work," - So that's good to know.

Could've been worse! What if he woke up from the tranquilizer in a cage with other gorillas...

Especially if one of the female gorillas decided she *liked* him!

I think a bit of male attention would yield more devastating consequences...
