AMSTERDAM POLICE say 15 camels, two zebras, llamas and potbellied swine ran off on Monday from a travelling Dutch circus after a giraffe kicked a hole in their cage.

Police spokesman Arnout Aben says the animals wandered in a group through a nearby neighborhood for several hours after their breakout.

The animals were back at the circus later after being caught by police and circus workers.

The spokesman said neighbours fed some of the animals, which he said was a bad idea, but they were tame and nobody was hurt.
