A creative animal escape drill has been conducted at a Japanese Zoo.

An emergency drill started when a zoo worker donned a cartoon-like bear costume to play the role of a fugitive bear.

The drill at Hitachi City Kamine Zoo was aimed at stimulating the facility’s response to an Asian black bear escaping after an earthquake.

The drill included the zoo staff, local police, the fire department, and the city’s pest damage prevention team attempting to recapture an escaped bear portrayed by the zoo employee.

The response team used nets and vehicles to corner the man-bear before simulating the process of shooting it with a tranquilizer dart. The bear was then returned to its enclosure.
