• Short Summary

    Men attempt to catch monkeys to move them to a new enclosure at a zoo.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Moving Day AT THE ZOO!'

    Location is probably United States of America.

    Various shots of men trying to catch monkeys at a zoo, stuffing bananas through the bars of a small cage to tempt the creatures in. The monkeys are all seen climbing to the top of a high mast. The men hoist the cage up towards the monkey on a winch but the monkeys simply take the bananas from the cage and run back up the mast to eat them.

    One monkey comes sliding down a rope and several men attempt to catch him but he is too fast for them and escapes over the fence. C/U of a lion, supposedly watching the action.

    We then see a crowd of people watching the monkeys arriving at their new monkey pit - they all run out of a box and explore their new surroundings. Tilt down a sort of stone monkey tower where hundreds of the creatures are sitting and moving about.
