TOKYO - Workers at Japan's Ueno zoo held a drill simulating a zebra escaping on Tuesday, featuring a staff member dressed as the animal running around the compound during the exercise.

The zoo said the drill was to prepare for possible scenarios during an earthquake.

Around 150 members of staff, local police and fire department officials took part in the exercise.
