Zookeeper dresses as zebra for hilarious animal escape drill at Japanese zoo
Staff at a zoo in Japan have taken part in an animal escape drill – using one of their zookeepers dressed as a zebra.
|You better RUN, MOTHERFUCKER!|
Around 60 workers chased the unfortunate employee around Tama Zoological Park, in Tokyo, while he wore a panto-style zebra costume.
The hilarious simulation even saw the zookeeper tackled and zapped with a mock stun-gun by fellow workers as he tried to make a break for freedom.
|Don't taze me, br---OWWWWWW!|
Visitors evacuated the zoo for the drill, which also practiced for the event of a keeper being injured while trying to catch an escaped animal with a giant net.
The drill was based on the hypothetical scenario of an earthquake destroying a stone wall surrounding the animal’s enclosure.
Such instances can occur regularly in Japan, which has a long history of earthquakes and seismic activity.
|Got him! Prepare the condoms and lube.|
Previous simulations have included lions, gorillas and tigers – presumably involving similarly unlucky zookeepers in costumes.
