Three kangaroos, with the help of a fox and a wild boar, recently attempted to hop to freedom in Germany. From rampaging chimpanzees to an elephant in Manhattan, read on for more tales of animals on the loose.
German motorists were surprised to see kangaroos hopping near the road on Tuesday. Their escape wasn't hindered by the two fences surrounding their enclosure in Rheinböllen Wildlife Park: a wild boar destroyed one and a fox dug a hole under the other, and the three marsupials made a jump for it. But they didn't get too far: Jack, Mick, and Skippy were caught only nine miles from home. From rampaging chimpanzees to an elephant in Manhattan, see more tales of animals on the loose.
