A vet shot a tranquiliser dart at a zoo employee dressed as a gorilla after mistaking him for a primate.

The 35-year-old zoo employee was shot on Monday at Loro Parque Zoo on the Spanish island of Tenerife.

Staff at the zoo were taking part in a drill designed to ensure they had an emergency plan in place in case one of the gorillas escaped its enclosure.

But the vet had not been informed of the training exercise, and fearing that there was a gorilla on the loose he sprang into action.
The vet fired the shot - designed for a 400lb gorilla - at the man and hit him in the leg.

According to La Opinión de Tenerife newspaper when the man was located he was in his underwear.

He was taken to the University Hospital of the Canary Islands.

The zoo said in a statement he has recovered well and is now in good health.

It was the zoos bad for not informing EVERYONE about the drill, like for instance the veterinarian with a tranquilizer gun and enough sedative to knock out a 400 pound gorilla.
He's damn lucky to be alive after that.
