An awkward moment has been captured on video as a female chimps in a Queensland house try to get to the top of a balcony in the middle of the night.
The video, uploaded by a YouTube user called ‘Chimpchim’, shows the chimp trying to climb to the roof of the house in the Australian city of Brisbane on Friday morning.
But it was not to be.
Instead, the chimps were left hanging by a single rope, with no one around to help them.’
I don’t know if they are going to climb up or down,’ one chimps says in the video.’
We don’t have any ropes, we have no rope to pull it up.’
It is not the first time the video has captured the plight of chimps.
In August, another video showed a female chimp hanging from a balcony from the roof in Melbourne, Australia.
Chimps in captivity have a reputation for being difficult to manage and even more difficult to train.
A 2010 study from the University of Sydney revealed chimps are ‘very dependent’ on human companionship.
