Elephant escapes Swiss circus
Police in Switzerland have recaptured a five-ton elephant that escaped from a circus on Sunday and ran through Zurich's banking district.
Sabu, a three-metre tall female, escaped from its keepers as it was being loaded onto the back of a truck and fled into the Swiss city's commercial and banking district.
The elephant managed to avoid capture for two hours as police chased it, before it went to take a swim in nearby Lake Geneva, the Daily Mail reported.
The animal kept a leisurely pace as it walked through the city, not causing any damage during its escape.
A keeper managed to calm down Sabu and bring it back to the circus.
