Japanse zoo bereidt zich op hilarische wijze voor op ontsnappingspoging van zebra’s

Alle hens aan dek voor de medewerkers van de dierentuin Ueno in de Japanse hoofdstad Tokio. Er werd een grootscheepse oefening op poten gezet, voor als een van de zebra’s mocht ontsnappen. Eén van de dierenverzorgers mocht zich in een pluchen kostuum hijsen, waardoor de noodoefening onbedoeld op de lachspieren werkte.
