"Looking back at my photos of the day out, I was annoyed to find that a number of my family 'selfie' snaps featured an uninvited animal in the background," an excerpt from the letter reads.

"Whilst I understand we are there to see and enjoy the animals, to not be able to capture at least one family picture in the zoo area with no animal interruptions is quite upsetting."

The unnamed man says he is 'convinced' the animals are trained to photobomb guests.

The zoo has posted a copy of the letter with the sender's name blacked out to Facebook and issued an apology. The post has since gone viral, racking up more than 800 'likes' and hundreds of shares.

Some comments on Chessington's Facebook page insist the letter is a fake, or that it was written as a joke.

Going forward, the zoo is asking guests to report any incidents of unwanted photobombing.
