    Tokyo zoo practices tiger escape drill

    Tokyo International Party

    The drill is designed to simulate an earthquake and sets up a scenario in which a Siberian Tiger breaks free in order to test the staff's response to recapturing it.

    "If you wish information and improvement from the knowledge of others, and yet at the same time express yourself as firmly fix'd in your present opinions, modest, sensible men, who do not love disputation, will probably leave you undisturbed in the possession of your error."
