Five Lions Escape Sydney Zoo

From a Washington Post story by Victoria Bisset headlined “Five lions escape their exhibit, sending Sydnet zoo campers running”:

Animal lovers who signed up for a special overnight stay at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo ended up with a closer encounter than they bargained for after five African lions escaped.

After watching the sun set over Sydney’s historic harbor, the guests attending the “Roar and Snore” experience at Taronga Zoo lay down in their safari-style tents, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the nearby animals. Shortly after dawn Wednesday, however, they were waked urgently by zoo staff, who rushed them away.
