TOKYO (NBC/RTV) - A fake zebra got loose at a zoo in Tokyo Friday.
The fake zebra was part of a disaster drill at the zoo.
Armed with nets, sticks, radios and a tranquilizer gun, zoo staff ran after a zookeeper dressed as a zebra.
After a couple of minutes on the run, a staff member was able to sedate the wayward animal from a van with a tranquilizer dart.
As for the poor employee who had to dress up as the zebra, he said that he was handed the task because he was one of the zoo's newest employees.
