cgy-gorilla-knife“Onlookers at the Calgary Zoo were shocked Tuesday when a western lowland gorilla picked up a knife and pointed it at a troop mate…”

When I’m cleaning around the house I leave random things laying around, sure. Things like my cell phone (because it’s always in my hand), lip gloss (because I compulsively reapply every 5-7 minutes), maybe a beverage even, but a knife? Pretty big “whoopsie” considering the environment. In all fairness, none of the animals were injured and the person responsible claims to feel horrible, BUT…
