(ANSA) - Imola, September 21 - A circus giraffe who escaped
onto the streets of a town near Bologna is dead after being
tranquillized for re-capture Friday.
The giraffe eluded capture for several hours, running amuck
and damaging cars with its 920-kilogram body.
Witnesses spotted its long neck from blocks away as it
galloped across the historic center of Imola, crossing busy
streets in early rush-hour traffic.
Police eventually cornered the animal in the fenced parking
lot of a Coop grocery store and subdued it with two
tranquilizers.
Soon after his return to the Rinaldo Orfei Circus, the
giraffe fell down dead of cardiac arrest.
