Orangutan injures intruder who scaled Fresno Chaffee Zoo enclosure

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man injured by an orangutan at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo has been arrested. Zoo security contacted the Fresno Police Department when they say they found Ramiro Hernandez in the orangutan enclosure. He's somehow managed to scale a five foot barrier before reaching into the cage and actually touching the animal before it scratched him several times on the arm.

Hernandez was not seriously injured but was arrested for trespassing in an enclosed animal cage. He was cited and told to appear in court.
