Escaped giraffe leads police chase through Italian town

(ANSA) - Imola, September 21 - A circus giraffe was on the loose in a town outside Bologna, causing damage to cars and leading police on a chase for hours on Friday. 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. Drivers reported hoof damage to their cars, portions of which crumpled beneath the weight of the animal's 920 kilograms, but no injuries were reported. Police eventually cornered the giraffe in the fenced parking lot of a Coop grocery store and subdued it with two tranquilizers. It was returned to the Rinaldo Orfei Circus by midday.
