Chimpanzees send invading raccoon flying

The animal wandered into the chimp enclosure at the Saint Louis Zoo last week. Zoo visitor Adam Brucker captured the entire episode on his cell phone.

The chimps chased the raccoon down and tossed it around, even throwing it through the air. They intercepted the animal as it tried to escape through a hole in the wall, then really gave it a beating.

But... while you don't see it on the video... the raccoon does survive this tormenting encounter with the chimps. And eventually makes his escape.
