TOKYO (NBC/RTV) — A Tokyo zoo had a drill Tuesday to train staff members how to deal with an escaped wild animal. For the drill, a staff member dressed as a snow leopard and moved throughout the zoo. Zoo visitors watched, and one little girl said the leopard wasn’t very scary.
The fake leopard knocked down a staff member, who then needed CPR. Staff eventually cornered the fake leopard and shot it with a tranquilizer gun. Some 70 staff members took part in the drill.
