Chaffee Zoo orangutan gets an abandoned sippy cup with a stick


An orangutan at Fresno's Chaffee Zoo is proving it pays to be persistent.

As you can see in this video sent in by one of our viewers -- this orangutan was bound and determined to get ahold of an abandoned sippy cup.

He used a stick to pull it closer toward him. After about a minute and a half of hard work -- the ape finally hits paydirt and strolls around the zoo with the cup in its mouth.
