ATHERSTONE, England, Aug. 15 (UPI) -- A chimpanzee broke out of her enclosure at a zoo in England and pilfered the zoo's kitchen, officials say.

It took Twycross Zoo staff members 40 minutes to calm Josie the chimp after she was found smashing pots and pans, and throwing food at employees in the kitchen at the Atherstone, England, zoo, The Sun reported Monday.

"Josie decided she wanted an extra snack and managed to get into the back kitchen area within the chimpanzee building, where her food is usually prepared. We are not entirely sure how she managed it but a full investigation is under way," said a zoo spokeswoman, who added that "At no time were either Josie or the public in any danger."
