Mitsuki, Okinawa Zoo escape artist, back in public
Mitsuki, a 3-year-old female black bear who escaped twice from her cage in Okinawa Kodomo-no Kuni Zoo last year, is back in the public view at the zoo for the first time in about five months.
In a last November incident, Mitsuki broke her cage with her teeth, and escaped from the enclosure. Since that was her second escape from the cage, the zoo declined to show Mitsuki to the public until the cage renovating construction was completed.
The zoo changed the roof material of the cage from chain link fence to stronger iron cars to ensure the integrity of the cage.
