Pigs orchestrate zoo great escape<br><br><br><br>
A wallaby has escaped from a zoo in Bristol after three pot-bellied pigs dug a tunnel under his enclosure.<br><br><br><br>
Wally, an Albino wallaby, used the tunnel to make his way into woodland beside Noah's Ark Zoo.<br><br><br><br>
It appears he may not have appreciated the advances of his female companion who was ready to mate.<br><br><br><br>
He'd been sent to the zoo from Bournemouth to breed with Wendy and two other female wallabies.<br><br><br><br>
Although Wally returns to the zoo at night to feed on vegetables, he has eluded staff for two weeks, says the Daily Express.<br><br><br><br>
Zoo owner Christina Bush says staff have an idea where Wally is and may have to use a tranquilliser dart to get him back.<br><br><br><br>
"Wally is extremely elusive and seems to be enjoying his freedom. He waits around for you and then does an enormous leap when you get close," she said.<br><br><br><br>
The pigs that dug the tunnel didn't try to escape. "The pigs love their food. That's why they stayed behind," added Ms Bush.
