Halt! - Bengal Tiger's also took an interest...<br />
<br />
Longleat’s infamous troop of mischievous monkeys, along with the parks other wiley inhabitants, have been wreaking havoc on unsuspecting motorists for decades.<br />
<br />
But even they were a little overwhelmed when they came face to face with the might of the British Army this week.<br />
<br />
Soldiers from the 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, based in nearby Warminster, took one of their Warrior armoured vehicles through some of the Wiltshire safari park's most notorious enclosures.<br />
<br />
And despite the animals obvious interest the 27.5 tonne, six-metre-long caterpillar tracked vehicle eventually emerged without a scratch.<br />
<br />
The Army were visiting the park ahead of a new military spectacular event which is taking place on the estate later this month.
