Gorilla prank scares football players

Football players are known for being pretty tough, but a bear scare sent a bunch of them running.

College prospects were at a training camp run at a sports complex in Orlando, Fla.

They were warned that a gorilla had escaped from the animal kingdom. At first the players continued their drills unfazed.

That's until a gorilla jumped out from behind the bushes and scared them all.

It was just a prank. The gorilla was a man dressed in a gorilla suit.
