What with the animal war ongoing, I took special note of the following:

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Fifteen camels, two zebras and several llamas and pot-bellied pigs escaped from a circus visiting Amsterdam early Monday, police said.

“We suspect that a giraffe kicked open a pen,” Dutch police said in a statement, adding that the animals did not get far before they were rounded up and returned to the circus.

I have a lot of respect for giraffes. I would hope they wouldn’t side with the birds on this …
