Escaped rhino drill

The best part about this video of an “escaped rhino drill” at a Japanese zoo is the fact that they had to construct that rhino costume entirely for the sole purpose of performing escaped-rhino drills. Via BB.

    My favorite part is when it gets darted and takes a minute to pass out.

    The zookeepers get so into it!
    I suppose they have to for it to be an effective drill

    I wouldn’t want to be the person wearing that costume when they start firing foot long darts!

    The thing about real rhinos is that they can run really, really fast. Like 35 mph fast. I don’t think those two guys in the cardboard costume can do them justice. If you had a ton of horned, angry, nearsighted animal running at you at 35mph, you want to have more than a flimsy net and some pokey sticks.

    I was going to post that it’s a lot easier to remember your drill when faced with a papier mache rhino with two colleagues in it than it must be with 400lb of confused beast running aroung!
