    Monkey uses garden hose to scale moat, flee zoo

    MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) -- MacGyver's got nothing on this monkey.

    A spider monkey new to the city's Washington Park Zoo used a garden hose to scale the walls of a moat and make a break for freedom.

    Workers were cleaning the moat at the time Wednesday. Zoo Director Johnny Martinez says workers had figured the monkeys would remain inside their enclosure during the cleaning even though the moat was empty of water.

    However, one monkey made it past the moat, grabbed the hose and jumped onto the roof of a water filtration plant.

    Boy, he was a smart little monkey! Too bad he didn't have a jungle to run to maybe he thought he could sail away~
