What’s with all of the circus animals trying to escape into Mexico City lately? On Monday night a tiger escaped from its unlocked cage and attacked its keeper, back in September a five-ton elephant escaped from the circus and got hit by a bus on the highway, and according to the AP, “three tigers escaped from a circus truck and took shelter in a house in western Mexico last week, but were quickly recaptured.” (Can you just picture that scene?) I’ve also heard rumors of toucans and smacky frogs heading for the hills.
What gives? I’m starting to think these circuses aren’t all fun and games. My guess is that there’s some kind of sick underground marketing scheme going on. Those ad men at Kellogs are trying to bring their evil corporate agenda to Mexico and these cats aren’t having it. Run Tony, RUN!
