Escaped Hippo Wanders Through Flood-Battered Streets

A hippo takes a walk on the streets of Tbilisi after escaping from a flooded zoo.

The one ton creature looks shell-shocked as it encounters freedom for the first time after its enclosure was destroyed in heavy rains and high winds.

These were the apocalyptic scenes in Tblisi today where lions, bears, wolves and a hippo were among dozens of animals on the loose following heavy flooding, The capital of Georgia has been placed on lock-down after the flooding destroyed enclosures at the city's zoo - allowing a host of dangerous and scared animals to escape and roam the streets.
