WATCH: Orangutan Tosses Possum At Australian Zoo

An orangutan at an Australian zoo horrified visitors when it brutally evicted a possum by “launching” it from the top of its enclosure after the wily pest had invaded its space. A viral video shows the critter hurtling through the air and vanishing from view after being pitched from a tall metal tower at Perth Zoo, on Australia’s west coast. Several people can be heard screaming in the background, with one exclaiming, “Oh, my God!” The primate then emerges from the enclosure, as if to check where the airborne possum had landed. When asked about what happened to the unfortunate marsupial, a Perth Zoo official told Yahoo! News Australia: “I would presume it did not survive the fall. Obviously the loss of any living creature saddens us, but also nature playing out.” (From YouTube description)
