Fake snow leopard attempts zoo escape

Visitors to Tama Zoological Park in Tokyo were surprised this morning by a zoo employee attempting to escape the grounds, while dressed as a snow leopard.

The event happens each year at various zoos across Tokyo, to remind staff members how to respond to a real animal escape.

The fake snow leopard mimed maiming a fellow employee, who was taken away in an ambulance, before succumbing to a fake tranquiliser gun.

Previous animal costumes used as part of the drill have included zebra, rhino, lion and orangutan outfits.
