Elephant Goes Swimming, 'Window-Shopping' In Zurich (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

An escaped circus elephant roamed the rainy streets of downtown Zurich yesterday evening for an hour before Swiss police and animal specialists apprehended her.

Sabu, a 26-year-old female on the run from Zircus Knie, took a quick dip in Lake Zurich before making her way through the Bahnhofstrasse, a main thoroughfare in the heart of the city's commercial and banking district. After sauntering past the Credit Suisse Group AG and UBS AG banking headquarters, she was re-captured without incident, and no injuries were reported, police said in a statement.
