Ueno Zoo Drill: Tiger

(YouTube link)

The Tama Zoo and the Ueno Zoo (both in Tokyo) perform annual training drills so that zookeepers know what to do when an animal escapes. Since they cannot use a dangerous beast, workers dress as the escapee, which gives zoo visitors and web surfers an entertaining interlude. The drill this week at the Ueno Zoo featured a Siberian tiger who got out of its pen during an earthquake. -via Pink Tentacle Previously: Rhino and Zebra drills.

I have wondered how effective these drills are because I don't think wild animals would stay on the paved areas. Nor does poking a enraged animal with a stick have any pacifying effect.
