MARY REICHARD: Last week we reported on an owl named Flaco who escaped a zoo in New York City…well, other creatures have apparently caught on.


MR: Just yesterday, a zoo in Omaha confirmed a cheetah escaped from its enclosure…and the day before that a Malayan tapir (it looks like a pig with a long nose) squirmed out of its cage in Miami…

And recently a bear escaped its pen at the St. Louis zoo…and in Kentucky a pet monkey was on the lam for two days...And then, Myrna, did you see this video from Scotland?

MB: Nope…

MR: Well on Monday, workers at a farm figured out how their sheep kept escaping their pen. You can hear this Leicester sheep opening the latch with her mouth…then pulling the gate open, and letting out all her friends.

MB: Spring is in the air…

MR: Apparently…it’s The World and Everything in It.
