Zookeepers capture an escaped chimpanzee during an Escaped Animal Drill at Tama Zoological Park on February 7, 2017, Tokyo, Japan. The annual escape drill is held in Tokyo zoos for zookeepers to practice how they would need to react in the event of a natural disaster or another emergency. This year a member of staff wearing a chimpanzee costume was captured and subdued by other zookeepers before it could escape out onto the streets of Tokyo. During the drill, participants used large nets, sticks and tranquilizer guns to make sure the monkey didn't get away. (Photo by Rodrigo Reyes Marin/AFLO)
