BANGKOK (AP) — Has anyone seen a giraffe running on a highway in Thailand?
Two giraffes escaped from a truck and only one has been caught.
The pair were being transported Tuesday from a Bangkok airport to a new zoo in Prachinburi province. When the truck stopped at an intersection, the giraffes jumped out and ran away, local media reported.
Their escape caused a traffic jam and some motorists honked their horns to scare the giraffes away.
A video posted on social media showed a giraffe galloping in the middle of a road during daytime, while another filmed at dusk showed a giraffe in front of a bush, with vehicles passing in the background.
