A zoo outside Paris had to be evacuated after monkeys escaped.

Vincennes Zoo raised the alarm after the 52 baboons got free.

Police were called and marksmen armed with hypodermic needles were at the scene, and a perimeter around the zoo was created to stop cars from entering.

All but three of the baboons were captured after they all gathered at the centre of the zoo. None of the monkeys made contact with the public, according to the Mirror.
