By | July 4, 2008

msterdam police say 15 camels, two zebras and an undetermined number of llamas and potbellied swine briefly escaped from a travelling Dutch circus after a giraffe kicked a hole in their cage.

Police spokesman Arnout Aben says the animals wandered in a group through a nearby neighborhood for several hours after their 5.30am breakout.

The animals were back at the circus later in the day after being rounded up by police and circus workers with the assistance of dogs. –bb
