Three baboons who went on the run, prompting the evacuation and closure of a zoo in Paris, ended their escapade and were returned to their enclosure in the early hours of Saturday.
The Vincennes zoo, shut on Friday afternoon while dozens of police and zoo-keepers launched a monkey-hunt, said the three - a baby and two older females - were returned to their enclosure at 4.15 am.
"The incident is over," the zoo said in a statement.



A Guinean Baboon is seen at the Paris Zoological Park.

It said it would reopen to visitors later in the day and was now trying to establish how the primates got loose in the first place.
The alarm was raised on Friday afternoon when a zoo employee bumped into a baboon in a corridor.
