KUSA – Kansas City Zoo officials say the multiple chimpanzees that became loose in the "backstage" area of the zoo were returned to their cages Thursday afternoon.

Visitors were locked in buildings as a precaution, according to the Kansas City Star. It is unclear how the chimpanzees escaped.

The zoo said there were no injuries.
