Are recent zoo breakouts a climate change warning?

After last week's gorilla escape from a Northern European zoo, we see listed next to BBC News Video reports on the harbingers of climate change, more primates breaking out of zoos.

Given that animal instinct is far more alert to impending natural disaster than ours is, could the recent behaviour also be a harbinger? A forewarning? Perhaps not as dramatic as the dolphins leaving the planet after failing to warn us humans of impending planetary demolition and leaving us with a polite, "So long and thanks for all the fish." in Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but the unseasonal European spring is dramatic enough in it's own rite.
