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.
