An unpleasant incident took place in the Kursk State Circus last night. A bison came out of the building unnoticed. The nearly 900-kilogram animal left its corral and went on a night tour of the foggy regional center.
“Of course it’s unusual.” I think that after the program “Wild Planet” the bison really liked Kursk, and he wanted to see with his own eyes the historical part of the city, – said Natalia Leonova, director of the Kursk State Circus.
The escape of the bison from the circus, according to the security service, occurred closer to 4 o’clock in the morning.
“He tore down part of the fence.” It was easy for him to do it, – Natalia Leonova explained. – I walked around the circus square. Visited Lunacharsky, Red Square.
A 10-year-old bison named Barney moved to the territory of the historic Kursk child after visiting Red Square. The animal was eventually found near Znamensky Cathedral, where he ate fresh green grass. The bison was offered a carrot and taken to the circus.
“He’s resting a little.” He was given a sedative. We brought him to the circus building, – summed up the director of the Kursk circus.
How the bison managed to make a daring escape, now the circus management understands. Upon departure of the animal from the enclosure, an inspection is carried out.
