Jan. 10 (UPI) -- A BBC reporter's attempt to tape a segment at a zoo in England was complicated by a conspiracy of lemurs that climbed on his body and nibbled on his hands.

The network tweeted outtakes from Alex Dunlop's recent report at the Banham Zoo in Norfolk.


The video shows Dunlop attempting to deliver his report while lemurs climb on his body, but the animals keep getting in the way.

Two lemurs make their way to Dunlop's shoulders, while another climbs on his pant leg.

Dunlop begins talking about the zoo's "annual stock take of animals" until one of the lemurs bites him on the hand.

"Ow, you little [expletive]," Dunlop says.

Dunlop tweeted that "no lemurs were hurt in the making of this movie."
