    You guys forgot the day Judy the elephant escaped from the Chapultepec Zoo in Mexico City in 1958. She caused quite a havoc.

    I would like to add a story about Pink Floyd. A flamingo that escaped a place called tracy aviary in Utah back in 1988. Was never recaptured and last confirmed siting was at the great salt lake in 2005.

    I think Flamingo No. 492 from the Sedgwick County Zoo (in Wichita, KS) should have been on here. It's hasn't been caught since it escaped 14 years ago and is frequently seen in Texas, Louisiana, and Wisconsin. Unfortunately they haven't been spotted in Kansas since their escape.

    Why are the most dangerous animals not kept in cages? I'm talking about businessmen, lawyers, religion leaders and politicians.

    Don't they think "fugitive penguin" is a LITTLE excessive?

  13. Chrissie Brewer Reply

    What about Reggie the alligator from Wilmington California

  14. A zebra recently escaped from a circus on to the highway in Germany and was shoot dead by Police

  15. fun fact: when mother wallabys (basically smaller kangaroos) are really scared they take their baby out of their pouch and throw them away so they can run faster

    If you see a bald Eagle in a zoo you are seeing the symbol of freedom in a cage

  17. Diana Tumuhimbise Reply

    I mean these animals should be in the wild where they belong. Of course some of them would escape they want to be free

  18. Thomas Zulli Reply

    I heard in that 82 days, the penguin started a life of crime where he evaded capture by a bat and a small bird.

  19. Thomas Zulli Reply

    UH….what about the 1993 incident that saw a troubled youth, a native american employee and a trainer stole a killer whale in the Oregon area. It was last scene jumping a rock wall into the ocean and over the boy…as if he was commanding him to. Though there were rumors he was scene near some islands and by poachers

  20. It makes me sad that humans think they own all life forms and can simply take and cage animals away from there homes , friends and family
