  • In Pictures Animals escape

    An elephant sparked panic in Zurich, Switzerland when it escaped from a zoo and spent two hours walking through the city's streets. The 5-ton male named Sabu evaded his handlers as he was being loaded for transport. He walked into the city where he bathed in a lake before heading up the main street towards the railways station. Police closed roads as the specialist vets tracked the 10-foot high elephant. He was finally lured into the back of a trailer and returned to his owners at a traveling Circus.
