Zoo hires gymnast to teach apes to climb

Seriously. Orangutans kept for years in an enclosure without anything to climb on became so terrestrial that, when an improved space with trres was provided, the apes didn't try to climb or swing. The zoo hired a Dutch gymnast to climb around in the trees in the hopes the orangs would follow suit. Umm... "monkey see, monkey do?"
