Check out this rather strange rhino escape in Japan!

Ever wondered how a zoo prepares for an animal escape?

Using two men in a papier maché rhino of course!

Over 100 staff took part in this bizarre drill, which tries to recreate what would happen if a rhino escaped after an earthquake.

Once keepers had surrounded the "rhino" with a net, it was tranquillized and captured, before the two staff inside the suit were allowed to return to their normal duties.
