A Zoo Mistakenly Shot a Guy in a Gorilla Suit With a Tranquilizer Dart

Loro Parque is a zoo in the Canary Islands.  And they were running a drill this week where a 35-year-old employee dressed up in a gorilla suit, so the staff could practice how they'd handle a loose gorilla. 

Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell one of the veterinarians on staff.  Because he saw the guy in the gorilla suit . . . thought he was an ACTUAL gorilla on the loose . . . and SHOT HIM with a tranquilizer dart. 

That dart had enough tranquilizer in it to take down a 400-POUND gorilla.  The guy in the gorilla suit was taken to the hospital, where he's still in serious condition.
