4 Baboons Escaped from a San Antonio Medical Research Center Saturday
4 baboons have been returned to their quarters at a San Antonio research facility this week after escaping the Southwest National Primate Research Center.
Our first thought was, "Well, here comes the inevitable zombie outbreak". However, there is no evidence that the zombie baboon Apocolypse is underway. Maybe it was just 4 baboons that wanted to stretch their legs on what was a really nice afternoon in San Antonio. Three of the baboons ended up about 30 minutes away from the institute. A 4th was found later and returned to TBRI.
Can't say I blame them for escaping. There are some 1100 baboons listed at the Texas Biomed Research Institute. The animals help with research of chronic and infectious diseases, according to ABC13.com.
