This Japan Zoo Practices For An Animal Escape By Dressing A Human Up As A Zebra And It’s ROFL Hilarious


If an animal at this zoo in Japan escapes, the workers will know exactly what to do thanks to this man who dressed up as a zebra on the loose. No, he didn’t just dress up – he played that damn part. He committed to this role.

Take notes, Leo.

At your school, they do fire drills. At a zoo, it makes sense to do animal escape drills. To do so, they have a man dressed up in full animal gear run around the park until he is tranquilized. Short of letting an animal out for real, I’m not sure how else you’re supposed to practice for such a scenario. You can’t just chase a guy who isn’t in a zebra suit around – that’s absurd.

The drill is useful, yes, but I can tell you that it’s also going to be the funniest thing you’ve ever seen.

I have so many questions, but I think it’s better to just watch and enjoy. (And make sure you watch until the zebra is tranquilized and poked with a stick. Gold.)


If there was an award for best death scene in an animal costume, this dude would win hands down.
