A Pack of Zoo Wolves Escapes… Right Into The Polar Bear Enclosure

Canada’s wildlife is at it again, but this time they’re playing out a classic scene from literature. It’s The Count of Monte Cristo, or perhaps The Shawshank Redemption, zoo style.

In The Count of Monte Cristo, the Mad Priest miscalculates the route that his tunnel must take to break him out of imprisonment at the Château d’If and instead winds up digging into another prisoner’s cell.

Taking a page from Alexandre Dumas, a pack of 5 grey wolves at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg managed to dig a tunnel straight into the polar bear enclosure. Whoops.

Luckily for all carnivores involved, the wolves simply walked around the bear enclosure while the two female polar bears couldn’t even be bothered to wake from their slumber. Zoo staff discovered the predator party the following morning — via redwolf.newsvine.com
