Teddy Bear Escapes

We love watching Japanese zoos conduct their emergency drills with dangerous animals portrayed by a costumed person. The latest is from Hitachi City Kamine Zoo, where the practice scenario is a bear that escapes when an earthquake breaks the glass in the display enclosure. This drill involved not only zoo employees, but the local police, fire department, and the city's "pest damage prevention team." The bear was evenually shot by a tranquilizer dart, which we assume was as fake as the bear. The drill ended in success, and was most likely followed by bear hugs all around. (via Boing Boing)
