just a litte story for you all - on Sunday I was locked in the Safari Drive at Knowsley - it was about 5pm and I knew that I was one of the last as I was engrossed watching the baboons destroying cars and hence late finishing the drive around - so when I got to the last gate that they lock I was surprised to find the keeper just locking it and walking off as I pipped my horn and flashed my lights! - to no avail obviously - she drove off leaving a very substantial gate between me and my route home anyway - I drove back around to the entrance only to find that locked too - oh bum (or words to that effect) so I obviously had several options at my disposal: 1) Sleep in the car surrounded by curious hoofed stock and hope that I really didn't need the loo before morning 2) Lock the car and climb the gate and walk out 3) Ring the Office and hope that someone was still there I opted for option 3 - luckily someone WAS answering and they said they'd send a keeper back out to unlock the gates and free me (woo hoo). So I drove back to the locked gate (remember I was still by the lions gate at this point) - by way of the keepers road that they use to access the feed bays - how naughty I felt! and waited for only about 5 to 10 mins before being released back into the wilds I'll admit that I was secretly disappointed that I didn't have to spend the night in with the Nilgai, Pere Davids and Eland - but my bed was much warmer than the car would have been! So over to you - any other "Locked In Stories" out there??
