A recent zoo incident involving a chimpanzee in southern China has gone viral on social media. A zoogoer was captured on video throwing a water bottle at a chimpanzee in his enclosure.
The Chimpanzee then picked it up and threw it back into the crowd precisely, hitting a woman in the face and allegedly causing her to have a bloody eyebrow and a broken phone screen. The video, taken by another zoo visitor on their phone, shows the Chimpanzee demonstrating impressive precision and understanding of its surroundings.

The zoogoers were advised not to throw anything at the Chimpanzee because this specific Chimpanzee, named Diu Na Xing, is known for its habit of throwing rocks, mud, and other items toward the spectators, which is also the main attraction for many visitors.
The incident caused shock and outrage online, which led to a statement from the zoo management stating that they would increase inspection and surveillance of the chimpanzee enclosure.
