This is how zoo animals in Georgia had a field day, courtesy flash flooding
More than 30 wild animals like lions, tigers, hyenas, crocs, bears, wolves, and a hippo went on the loose in the streets of Tbilisi in Georgia as heavy downpour on Sunday destroyed the enclosures at the city zoo.
While many lost their lives and some are still at large, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili called on the residents to stay inside.
Here are the hair-raising footages and scenes caused by #Tbilisiflood which will give you a real-life feel of the 1995 flick Jumanji:
The hippo-sized problem!
The wayward hippo was eventually caught and was subdued by a shot of tranquiliser.
The bear hopped onto air conditioning unit of a building. There were another seven of his clan who too broke free.
Another lonely castaway.
A homeless large cat.
Not in high feather.
Penguins looking for their peers.
