A shirtless and obviously not sober man proclaimed himself as the real life Tarzan and tried to swing around with some of the moneys at his local zoo.
Official police reports of man claiming he’s Tarzan, surfaced the media earlier this August and the stories are absolutely hilarious!
The reports claim that “Tarzan” (who has been identified as a man named John William Rodenborn) tried to socialize with some monkeys at a zoo located in California, US. The guy went to the Santa Ana Zoo and tried breaking into several of the animals’ enclosures. The reports show that John was shirtless and fully covered in mud while trying to get closer to the animals. At first he attempted to find a way to get into the birds’ enclosures, but failed. So, he went on to climb a tree and he tried to swing his way into the monkeys’ enclosures. Santa Ana Zoo’s director, Kent Yamaguchi, was so shocked by the man’s actions that he immediately called 911. The police came rushing to the zoo and found the mud-covered John still trying to get close to the monkeys. The guy reportedly told the cops that he was Tarzan.
According to the zoo’s director, the man had climbed a number of trees in his desperate attempt to swing around with the animals before the police came to the scene. The cops eventually found some drugs amongst the man’s personal possessions and ruled out that he was probably under the influence. Nobody bought the story that he was the real life Tarzan.
Fortunately, the monkeys, the birds and the rest of the animals hosted in Santa Ana Zoo weren’t injured or disturbed by the guy’s actions.
