(St. Paul, MN) -- Three gorillas at St. Paul's Como Zoo are secure after roaming free a short time Thursday morning. Zoo officials say Jabir, Samspon and Virgil escaped their main enclosure just before 10 a.m. The zoo was put on lockdown for about an hour until the animals were corralled. Although visitors were instructed to seek shelter, officials say nobody was ever in danger, including the gorillas.
