Not going to lie...when I first saw these Japan zoo drills I thought they were a joke. They are not. For any zoo keeper, it is your job to make sure that humans and animals alike are safe and that no animals escape. That's why zoo's often times have drills or training. Yet, Japanese Zoo's seem to be ultra prepared as they take it to the next level.
The Tobe Zoo in Japan was doing their drill recently when videos surfaced online and everyone seemed to take notice. While training for these situations should be taken seriously, that’s not quite how the internet viewed the zoo’s efforts. In the video below, you'll see what they do for training. It involves an animal mascot costume and wandering around the zoo. What makes it so amazing though is the incredible method acting from everyone involved. The "animals" are charging at people, the workers are falling down. Needless to say, it's quite entertaining. Check out a super cut from The Guardian below
