Nitwit News – June 5

While riding along a mountain pass in the Western Cape province of South Africa, Malcolm Fox was flagged down by an armed suspect, who ran up to him and robbed him of his belongings with the help of two accomplices. What the thieves didn’t take was Fox’s helmet, which had a GoPro camera attached to it. The entire robbery was caught on the GoPro and the footage helped lead to three arrests.

If you, for whatever reason, think it’s a good idea to run around in a gorilla costume, let this be a warning: Earlier this week, a veterinarian at a zoo in Spain reportedly shot an employee dressed in an ape suit after confusing him for a real gorilla. The incident happened during a practice drill at the zoo. The employee was running around the park mimicking an escaped gorilla when the veterinarian spied him and, apparently uninformed about the drill, shot him in the leg with a tranquilizer dose meant to take down a 400-pound gorilla. The employee was taken to a nearby hospital.
