Zoo practices how to recapture an escaped lion using a mascot in a costume

Tobe Zoo in Japan does training every year to make sure its staff is prepared if an animal escapes.

This year, for the first time, the zoo, which is located in Ehime, decided to open it up to the public. The public was encouraged to help staff control traffic. 

The staff were training on what to do if a lion escapes and appearing as a lion was a hilarious mascot dressed in a onesie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not amused: the real lions who watched the whole thing.
