Wildlife Officials Still Searching For Runaway Giraffe

Wildlife officials are still hunting for a giraffe on Wednesday afternoon that escaped from a truck on Tuesday night as it was being transported to an animal breeding facility in Prachin Buri province.

Two African giraffes were among 66 that landed at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport yesterday morning but while they were being loaded into a fleet of 24 lorries, bungling workers are believed to have accidentally unfastened a lock on one of the cages.

Footage shows how one of the giraffes charged down a busy highway after getting loose while the truck waited in traffic in Chachoengsao province at around 6pm.

Police and wildlife officials descended on the area and shot a 13ft tall giraffe with a tranquillizer and loaded it back into the truck.

However, the second runaway escaped into woodland and officers were still searching for it today. The province has vast areas of jungle that is home to hundreds of wild elephants
