Orangutan on the loose at Florida wildlife park

An orangutan has been let loose in a Florida animal park.

The female ape had to be tranquilised by keepers after it ran up a tree and then climbed on a sign.

Visitors were evacuated from part of the animal theme park as video footage showed the large female sitting about 20 feet above a large crowd.

Some of those in the park told how they were suddenly told to move.

An eyewitness told Fox News: "It climbed up out of the habitat and towards the guest area, just near the Zambia Smokehouse, which is in Stanleyville."
