zebraTOKYO –  Looking for a job? How about as a fake zebra looking to bust out of a Japanese zoo?

On the outskirts of Tokyo, staff at Tama Zoo took part in a drill designed to train staff on how to contain wild animals on the loose after an earthquake strikes.  Watch the raw video of the drill below:

One of the newest staff members had to be a zebra. He tries to bust out of a net fence, then is tracked down and shot with a tranquilizer gun.

The zebra imitator — the new guy on staff — said the suit was “a bit stinky with sweat” and that whoever dons the stripes next “should think about how to deal with that.”
