• Short Summary

    An item about the animals in Paignton zoo including a chain smoking chimp.

  • Description

    Paignton, Devon.

    Various shots of gibbons climbing trees, we see a black swan on the water and a crane wading through. There is a sign saying 'Danger Keep Out' beside a model railway which runs round the zoo. A man wades through the water to gibbon island and fills the food tray.

    We see a chimpanzee smoking a cigarette given to him by the keeper. We also see deer, a leopard and a hippopotamus. Various shots of children on animal rides. Several shots of the chimp smoking again and lighting one cigarette to another, he turns it round and eats the lit end. Children ride on a horse and trap and we see deer running through the park, we see the model railway again.
