Amsterdam police say 15 camels, two zebras and an undetermined number of llamas and potbellied swine briefly escaped from a traveling Dutch circus after a giraffe kicked a hole in their cage.
Police spokesman Arnout Aben says the animals wandered in a group through a nearby neighborhood for several hours after their 5:30 a.m. breakout.
The animals were back at the circus later Monday after being rounded up by police and circus workers with the assistance of dogs. Aben says neighbors fed some of the animals — which he said was a bad idea — but they were tame and nobody was hurt.
Says Aben: "You have to imagine somebody rubbing his eyes first thing in the morning and saying, 'Am I seeing things or is that 15 camels walking past?'"
PS. These photos are not of the Vigilante Giraffe. They are photos I took at the SF Zoo a few months ago. But I liked being able to use them in a post, because it's not every day that you can just say to someone: "Hey, want to see some cute photos of giraffes that I just took?"
And because The Boy really, really likes giraffes.
