It's A Zoo Out There...

...or at least it is in Tbilisi, Georgia (the country not the state) after several zoo animals escaped when their enclosures were flooded and destroyed during a storm. Among the escaped animals are a hippo, bears, wolves, tigers, lions and other critters.

Ten people have died, apparently as a result of the severe storm and reportedly not at the paws or maws of escaped animals and ten others are reported missing. The leader of the Georgian Ortodox Church has blamed former communist leaders who built the zoo using money obtained after they seized and melted down crosses and church bells and then used the money to build the zoo. More here.

All the best,
GB
