Tama zoo recently held a drill to simulate what would happen if a Siberian Tiger escaped. The safest and of course cutest way to do this is get a smiling fur-suit costume and a theatrically starved zookeper volunteer. Ueno and Tama zoo have held similar drills in the past with different animals including a zebra, monkey, lion, rhino and bear. The drills give zoo staff the experience in dealing with first aid, protecting visitors and working with the emergency services. They almost always include a melodramatic stun dart scene too. Pink tentacle has many of the past drills collected together.
