Car-bashing Houdini chimp does it again

Police say a chimpanzee who rampaged through a Las Vegas neighborhood last month made a second escape from her backyard enclosure.
The Las Vegas Sun reports a resident called authorities about 4:50pm Saturday to report CJ, the chimp, broke free from her cage. Las Vegas Metro Police captured her at around 5:30pm after setting up a containment area and targeting her with tranquilizer darts.
On July 12, CJ and her mate Buddy broke free and roamed through their owners' neighbourhood, pounding on vehicles and climbing in an unoccupied car. Buddy also jumped on cars.
An officer shot and killed him after police say he veered too closely toward onlookers.
CJ was returned to her owners then, but officials say that won't happen this time.
The Sun reports she was being secured at a local zoo.
