MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Zimm, the missing monkey, escaped her Memphis Zoo enclosure, but remains somewhere in the zoo. 

The incident, though, reminds many of the great escape some monkeys did make out of the zoo back in 1976.

Rhodes College students made a film about the escape, depicting how the monkeys made their way to campus. 

Rhesus monkeys somehow escaped their moat-protected island and climbed the Rhodes College library and Parkway House.

Zookeepers safely captured all of the monkeys by lacing popcorn with a sedative that caused the animals to doze off.
