Visitors of the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston had quite a fright  last week when a Silverback gorilla did something unexpected.

Onlookers were talking about the majestic beast when it stormed the glass barrier between the people and the habitat.

From the video description:

At Franklin Park Zoo today when ‘Okee,’ the Silverback gorilla pounded his chest King Kong and then looked the other way as if he was moving away from me, but then turned and came at me in lightning speed. Then, he jumped in the air and took a Karate chop at my head that actually shook the window”! It sounded like someone hit the window with a sledgehammer!”
