This may sound like the beginning of a joke - but it's not.
A baboon was on the loose in Winnipeg in Canada on Thursday.

It wasn't how promoters had pictured the media event unfolding, when the monkey made a quick escape during a photo op at the MTS Centre.

A media preview was de-railed when Kiki the baboon slipped under one of the other baboons in the cage, and made her escape.

The monkey scampered along guard railings and steel bins, as photographers snapped pictures.

And reporters gave Kiki plenty of room to roam.

Then it was out for a tour of the lower the bowl to check out some of the seating.

An escape staff say is no different then a dog getting loose from its kennel.

After a 20 minute run around MTS Centre...

The staff was finally able to lure Kiki back to her trainer’s arms with some jelly beans.
