Giant papier-mache rhino terrorizes Japanese zoo, almost escapes

You have to hand it to the folks over at Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. They probably don't need to use a life-size rhino made out of papier-mâché, but they didn't skimp either. The thing even has wiggling ears and a swinging tail. It's hilarious to see in action.

The rhino proxy takes two people to move (you can see the human legs sticking out from under it as it moves around), and it meets a variety of obstacles from zoo staff and police officers. It has to butt heads with cops in riot gear, clacking poles, restricting nets, tranquilizer guns and more. At one point it seems it's going to win its freedom, trampling one of the officers in the line.

Does it make it? Well, you'll just have to watch to find out.
