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.
