SALT LAKE CITY — A local expert with an impeccable track record has predicted that the Seattle Seahawks will win Super Bowl XLVII.

Eli, the big male orangutan at Hogle Zoo, entered his enclosure and found papier-mache helmets of the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.

Whether it was their punishing defense or young, playmaking quarterback Russell Wilson, Eli decided to knock down the Seahawks' helmet.

The zoo's apes are 100 percent accurate in their Super Bowl predictions, according to a press release from Hogle Zoo.


This image provided by the Hogle Zoo shows Eli the ape with a paper mache Seattle Seahawks helmet he chose over a Denver Broncos helmet, predicting the winner of this Sunday's Super Bowl at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014. Eli has correctly picked the Super Bowl winner for six straight years.
Federales, bring my baby back to me!
