Gorillas Too Have Bad Gas After Brussell Sprouts
Bosses at one of England’s top zoos had to evacuate an area after they gave gorillas brussel sprouts for breakfast.
The traditional Christmas veg made the animals cause such a stink the monkey enclosure at Chessington Zoo had to be cleared of visitors.
Keeper Michael Riozzi said: “We’ve started feeding the gorillas Brussels because they are packed with vitamin C.
“Unfortunately, an embarrassing side effect is that it can cause bouts of flatulence in humans and animals alike.”
The stunned zookeeper added: ”I don’t think any of us were prepared for a smell that strong.”
