Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom
When Chippy the chimpanzee started prank-calling workers at Blair Drummond wildlife park last year, people went bananas! Apparently the mischievous ape had secretly lifted a cell phone from the pocket of chief game warden Gary Gilmour and began calling people on speed dial—in the middle of the night!
NICE TRY, CHIMP! Although Chippy sounded like a crank caller when people first answered the phone, he eventually let out a telltale screech and blew his cover. And the 12-year-old didn’t get off scot-free. Jokes Gilmour: “He’s lost his phone privileges till he turns 18!”
